The purpose of this paper is to describe the use of a minicomputer in an integrated track inspection program. The basic elements of such a program include the measuring vehicle, data reduction process, and presentation of data to the various management levels. The paper describes such a system which has been in use on the Southern Railway for over five years and points out desirable changes, problems, and economics.
