ALONG SP's TRACKSITES
Yes, Texas and the other seven states served by Southern Pacific
are leading the nation in aggressive industrial expansion. All along
SP's 3,631 miles of track in Texas and 11,356 miles in the other states,
new plants and distribution facilities requiring spur track installations
are blossoming at the rate of over two per day. These progressive
activities encompass all phases of business, commerce, and industry;
and collectively are contributing importantly to a permanent prosperity
which is destined to play an impressive part in our national economy.
Southern Pacific's current multi-million dollar modernization program
is evidence of its intention to keep pace with the progress of its territory.
Since the end of World War II Southern Pacific has spent or has
contracted to spend $316,000,000 for new freight and passenger
equipment . . . a tremendous investment in the future of its area.
