REPAIRING TRACK LAID ON STEDEF TYPE SLABS AFTER DAMAGE BY A DERAILMENT

Slab track has been adopted or experimented with by various railways throughout the world, it has been feared that such track might be seriously damaged as a result of a derailment. Experience gained after two derailments on track laid on STEDEF slabs has shown that, at least with this type of slab which is independent of the superstructure, it is just as easy and as quick to effect repairs and restore services as with track laid on ballast.
