GROOVED BENT STOCK RAILS FOR SWTICHES

This report provides a brief description of the design and results of Union Pacific tests of grooved bent stock rails for switches. The conclusion of the Union Pacific at this time is that grooved bent stock rails for 16-ft. 6-in. switches (No. 10 turnout) in locations of normal traffic on the turnout side are of undoubted advantage and will far outlast ungrooved stock rails. Further observation will be required before arriving at a definite conclusion on grooved bent stock rails for 24-ft. switches.
