This second installment of a report by U.S. engineers and researchers on Soviet railroads was prepared after a trip to Russia. Soviet track maintenance is of four classifications and there is substantial mechanization of these operations, generally with large, expensive machinery. The major effort being devoted to track research in Russia dwarfs similar activity being carried on in the U.S. Details on experimental track-supporting construction are illustrated.
