USE OF AUTOMATICALLY ACQUIRED TRACK GEOMETRY DATA FOR MAINTENANCE-OF-WAY PLANNING

This report covers a joint FRA/Rail Industry Program to develop maintenance planning techniques based on regularly-scheduled automated track-geometry-measurements and maintenance-of-way reports. The study was conducted from 1971 through 1978 with the cooperation of the Bessemer and Lake Erie, and the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroads. As a result of the program, maintenance-of-way reports generated from track-geometry-measurement data have been used by the participating railroads in their maintenance planning and in the improvement of their overall track safety.
