Committee.

To the American Railway Engineering Association:

The Committee on Buildings submits the following report of its work for the past year.

(1) Manual Complete rearrangement of the subject-matter was made for publication in the new Manual. The Committee at this time have no changes or revisions to recommend.

(2) Specifications for Buildings for Railway Purposes The preparation of specifications, begun last year, was continued along similar lines. The Committee had hoped to present at this time specifications covering all the subjects outlined. It was found impracticable to entirely complete these, but seven (7) subjects have been covered, as included in Appendix A of this report.

It is hoped during the coming year to present an additional report covering subjects left undone so that at the next Convention we may offer the entire group of specifications for adoption by the Convention.

It would be helpful to the Committee to receive suggestions and advice with regard to the specifications presented and we earnestly urge upon all members that this be given consideration so that when presented for adoption, we may feel that the different points have been carefully considered.

(3) Ice Houses and Icing Stations The Committee offers as information, the report of its Sub-Committee given in Appendix B of this report.

(4) Floors for Railway Buildings The Committee offers as information, report of its Sub-Committee given in Appendix C of this report.

(5) Freight House Design The Committee found that there was very little available data with regard to the elements entering into design of freight houses and appointed one of its members, Mr. Hugo Filippi, to study this subject. The result of his study and investigation is given in Appendix D of this report.

(7) Standardization During the year the Committee was instructed to take up the question of standardization of various articles. The Committee is not ready to make any definite recommendations, but presents as a progress report the work of its Sub-Committee given in Appendix E of this report.

(6) Outline of Work The Committee recommends that, in addition to continuing the uncompleted assignments, the following subjects be assigned for investigation and report:

1. Ventilation of Buildings.
2. System for Numbering Railroad Buildings.
3. Design and Specifications for Different Types of Chimneys

or Stacks.
4. Economical Types of Ornamental Roof Coverings for

Passenger Stations.

CONCLUSIONS
The result of this year's work is presented as information and the
Committee has no conclusions to offer to the Convention at this time.

Respectfully submitted,
THE COMMITTEE ON BUILDINGS,

W. T. DORRANCE, Chairman.
