BUILDING BETTER GRADE CROSSINGS

"Standard" crossing materials and methods vary from railroad to railroad, but they are alike in one way: the standard crossing is the one that makes the most economic sense. The article looks at standards applied, the options available, the new and improved materials, the new methods, and industry wide efforts to come up with crossing-material performance specifications. Lab tests will include wear cycles, impacts of various chemicals, and various surface load capacities.
