MODERN METHODS OF HEAT TREATING CARBON STEEL TRACKWORK AND REPAIRING SUCH TRACKWORK BY WELDING

A program was developed to investigate heat-treated and flame-hardened carbon steel track work, and the repair of this type of track work by welding. The tests extended over nine years on three different sets of track. They were repaired by five different welding techniques. It was concluded that fully heat-treated materials wore better than rolled steel and flame-hardened steel, and that repair by welding extended the service of this type of track material.
