EVOLUTION OF PERMANENT WAY FOR 300 KM/H LINES

France is unique in having two experimental vehicles-- powered by gas turbines and electricity--which can be used to collect large amounts of data on track/train interaction at speeds in the 260 to 300 km/h range. SNCF has concluded that conventional sleepered track with only minor modification can be used for scheduled services at 260 km/h, and specifications have now been drawn up for new lines such as Paris-Sud-Est which are designed for 300 km/h. Details of this track design are given.
