Netherlands Railways has devised a simple solution to the insertion of an insulated joint into a length of long-welded rail for signalling purposes. It involves sawing through most of the rail section from below, but leaving the rail head intact while a strong glued joint is made with special fishplates. Holes for the fishplates are drilled before sawing begins. Because this technique produces such a perfect joint between the two rail ends, its use has now been extended to insulated joints in jointed track or point-work.
