By the end of 1966 the investment is anticipated to be $36,408 thousand, an increase of $5,267 thousand which represents estimated earnings and donations during 1965 and 1966.
Receipts, nonoperating income, and retained earnings include an estimated $3,558 thousand as of June 30, 1966, identified as Income provision for increased cost of equipment replacements to be used only for financing the increased cost of equipment replacement, i.e., the difference between the cost of the replacement unit and the cost at the time of acquisition of the unit being replaced. This increased cost is due to inflation and model improvement, and must be financed if the fleet strength is to be maintained and not depleted through the gradual attrition of price increases for replacements. The earnings for the provision for increased cost of replacements are derived from a factor which is included for this purpose in rental rates charged to program appropriations for equipment use and credited to the working capital fund.
