The report also describes the training practices, techniques and materials of formal Locomotive Engineer Training (L.E.T.) programs at six class-one railroads. Volume II presents suggested short term additions to the L&N's L.E.T. program; three model L.E.T. programs of Lou, middle and high costs (implementation and operation) and a cost-benefit analysis plan for the models.
