TRACK GEOMETRY DATA COLLECTED ON TEST SECTIONS OF THE SOUTHERN PACIFIC TRANSPORTATION COMPANY RAILROAD

The Track Geometry data was collected on the Southern Pacific Transportation Company Railroad in connection with the Truck Design Optimization Project. The data were collected on three test dates on three test sections; (1) Oakland-Ogden, (2) Schellville Branch, and (3) Niles Line. The track Geometry Data was collected onboard the FRA Track Measurement Car (T-3). The Track Geometry parameters listed on the tape are Gage, Left and Right Profile (14.5 chord), Crosslevel, and Curvature. All parameters are measured with noncontact sensors. The data on the tape also includes milepost numbers, original ENSCO tape number, automatic location detection level and speed of the measurement at the time of data collection.
