The Matisa range of equipment for simple and accurate track lining is described. The equipment consists of a roll ordinator, a slewing gauge, and a curve corrector. The conventional method of surveying track for lining purposes is by "string-lining." It is claimed that one man, using a roll ordinator can string-line a curve at twice the speed and with more accuracy than the normal three-man team. Following string-lining, an alignment adjustment can be arrived at, by operating on the measured versines, either mathematically or mechanically, by using a multistation curve calculator.
