ABSTRACT: Exploratory borings and soil classification studies are reported on for two locations; southeast Kansas and northeast New Mexico. The object of the work was the revelation of sufficient sub-soil information to enable a decision on the part of the sponsoring agency as to where to most appropriately install a railroad test track. Duplication of physical conditions most representative of present railroad track suppport conditions and economics of construction were important considerations.
