The Kommunarsk Steel Works has 200 km of intensively used industrial track where axle loadings are over 55 tons and the layout includes steep grades and sharp curves. While trains operate at only 25 km/hr, the trackage has been welded into 100-m lengths by a portable electric machine. Welds have been examined; the metallurgy of the joints and weld effects are described. Track maintenance has been reduced.
