Welding - the permanent way

In the late 1990s, Mr. Greg Low, then running a large industrial supply company in Western Sydney, was contracting to State Rail Australia repairing railway track. The process employed was an Arc Welding process using Flux Cored wires. Although the process had some very good benefits, there were issues. The process was restricted by axle weights, it was not for use on switchblades and there were limits to the size of repair that could be conducted. Even with these issues, the process was a huge improvement over replacing track or track components.
