SAND LAYER FOR TRACK STABILITY
A number of European railroads have had encouraging results with a layer of sand just below the ballast as a means of separating the ballast and also sealing it from the subgrade, thus improving track stability. This article describes the why and how of such sand layers. It also explains a unique system developed by Plasser for applying such a layer of sand on a production basis, and without removing the track.
