OFFICE: RPD
REPORT NUMBER: FRA/ORD-77/19
SUBJECT: Track
KEYWORDS: Track Research and Development, Standards, Track Equipment, Metallurgy, Welded Rail, Track Production & Reclamation Techniques
ABSTRACT: The report covers track research and development activities, rail metallurgy and the technology of laying welded rail, assembly and disassembly of track panels and wood tie reclamation. It draws upon the experiences, observations and disucssions of a seven-man team of engineers, researchers, and metallurgists who visited the Soviet Union during an 11-day period in 1976. The basic goals were to expand upon the knowledge obtained by previous delegations and to learn as much as possible for application or modification to US research and development activities and track maintenance procedures.
