Subject: Maintenance Man-hours
hi! I want to get standards or reference which have data about elasped man-hours or time for each maintenance task implementation. Here maintenance tasks refer to visual inspection, replenishment/replacement of consumable parts, condition check, function test with power on, and etc. Those about railway rolling stock will be better. Thank you!!

I would suggest that you use the information contained in the old Maintainability Prediction Handbook MIL-HDBK472. Some standardized time intervals for common actions are included in the revised handbook dated 1984. These times are not railroad specific. For railroad information I would suggest that you contact a railroad company to ask for repair records. You could also consult with the book "The Railroad, what it is, what it does" by John H. Armstrong, Simmons-Boardman Books, Inc., ISBN 0-911382-04-6.
