Canadian National has developed the mechanisms causing rail wear. While efficient remedial action is possible, it does require concerted effort by engineering, equipment and transportation functions. The forms of fast wear--gauge face, head flow and corrugation--are each caused by a different process, all of which are described. The recommendations for each problem are shown in tabular form. Unit trains complicate the problem and actions must be taken to counter their adverse effects.
