FRENCH RAILWAYS' TRACK. (VI) LAYING RAILS DIRECTLY ON CONCRETE BLOCKS

Two types of permanent way have been developed: (1) a heavy type for the heaviest traffic stressing when taking curves with small radii has given excellent service, requiring no maintenance whatever, and (2) lighter permanent way for straight tracks and curves of large radius. Illustrations show a track laid on concrete blocks, and the rail fastenings in tunnels.
