Historical Minute
Railway Air Conditioning

"In conclusion, it is felt that experience thus far indicates that air-conditioning of (railway) passenger cars is
desirable and practical; that reliable
axle generators, gear- or belt-drive, of
sufficient capacity are available; that
the mechanical compressor system
of refrigeration is suitable for operation on cars; that a simple automatic
control system can be worked out and
that using very conservative figures
the total costs for both operation and
fixed charges are such that a very small
increase in traffic, approximately onehalf passenger per car per day, would
pay all charges."

Costs," Railway Age, April 1, 1933,

New Guidance on Effectively Applying the Commissioning Process
The commissioning process can be a tool
to help a project achieve its goals.
The Commissioning Stakeholders' Guide
consolidates best practices, sample documentation and more than 50 project checklists in a practical and applicable resource
for a new construction project.

Using ASHRAE Guideline 0, The Commissioning Process, and ASHRAE/IES
Standard 202, Commissioning Process
for Buildings and Systems, the new guide
provides concise guidance and step-by-step
requirements for new construction commissioning for owners, designers and project

managers. The guide addresses every facet
of the process and describes systems-including those found in commercial, medical,
industrial and education facilities-in detail.
The guide's author, Gerald Kettler, P.E.,
Life Member ASHRAE, BEAP, BEMP,
