Track infrastructure for high speed passenger operation on a metre gauge network

This paper records the Infrastructure Standards required for the operation of a 160 km/hr Tilt Train on a 1067 mm gauge railway, over a 650 km long route. This route also carries unit coal trains, general freight traffic and other slower Intercity Services and long distance travel trains. Some brief details are also given on the general research and development methods, and other investigations necessary to determine minimum standards.
