DEVICE MEASURES TRACK-CENTER DISTANCES

Apparatus described was used for checking track centers on 120 mi between main tracks and 30 mi between main and side tracks in test. Truck is propelled by the outrigger pipes, but sliding frame permits it to move laterally so connecting cable actuates a transducer. Output voltage from potentiometric displacement transducer is fed into a recording voltmeter to produce a continuous tape for reading.
