STANDARDISATION OF POINTS AND CROSSINGS. TESTS ON EXISTING TURNOUTS OR THOSE EXPECIALLY DESIGNED AT THE PROPOSALS OF THE D121 SPECIALISTS COMMITTEE--INITIAL CONCLUSIONS
This report summarises the results of test runs on turnouts with speeds between 100 and 220 km/h on the diverging track. The tests were made by the FS, SBB, DR and SNCF. The results will permit specification of rail running face geometry for the switches negotiated, taking into account, in particular, their application in crossovers. Statements are also given concerning the running-in slope of check rails and the design of switch blade points in turnouts.
