UNIFICATION OF THE GEOMETRY OF SWITCHES AND CROSSINGS WITH UIC 60 RAILS PERMITTING HIGH SPEED ON THE DIVERGING TRACK. TESTS ON EXISTING TURNOUTS OR THOSE ESPECIALLY DESIGNED AT THE PROPOSALS OF THE D 121 SPECIALISTS COMMITTEE-SUPPLEMENTARY CONCLUSIONS
This report gives the results of the programme of measurements carried out from January 1976 to October 1977 on the SNCB, CFF, DB and SNCF networks. It deals primarily with the negotiation of crossovers suitable for speeds of 130 km/h and 160 km/h on the diverging tracks. Further information is given concerning the effect of check-rails with different entry slopes.
