Base courses are the bed of ballast under the sleepers, protective courses or layers laid or made artifically (gravel, cement and lime stabilization, and bituminous courses). The foundation for these courses are the untreated or soil bed. The basic construction of the system; deciding the size of protecting courses; and critical remarks on the process are discussed.
