THE CONCRETE TIE ... NEW LIFE FOR A FALTERING CAUSE

The concrete tie has not won widespread acceptance from track engineers, but various North American properties have tested or adopted such ties. In a series of five articles, various aspects of the current situation are discussed: Concrete ties on CN: The scenario behind the decision; Concrete ties for MARTA ballasted track; This concrete-tie test features conventional rail anchors (Santa Fe); Concrete-tie test criteria: What type of loading? How important are cracks?; and Interspersing concrete ties with wood ties: A look at Seaboard experiment 10 years later.
