EXTENSIVE RESEARCH INTO THE NEW TRACK STRUCTURE WITH LS FASTENINGS

DER GROSSVERSUCH MIT DEM NEUEN OBERBAU LS

On the DB network, extensive research with the new Ls fastening (set sole plates, sleeper screws and SKL1 tightening spike) has been carried out regularly as shown in Tables 1 and 2 during track laying in the second half of 1974. Experience has shown that it would be better to use nut-headed sleeper screws instead of normal screws. Despite the somewhat high cost involved, the overall result (assembly, laying, maintenance, annual costs) for the new rail fastening with nut headed sleeper screws could work out to be more economical. To reach a final conclusion on the use of the new sleeper screw, further extensive research should be carried out next year (1975).
