HOW AUTOMATED TRACK LINING AND RAISING SYSTEMS WORK. 3--THE FAIRMONT SYSTEM

This installment of a series describes the Fairmont system used for detecting errors in line and surface and for converting this information into signals that govern the raising and lining devices on production track maintenance machines. The three-point reference system for aligning both tangent and curved track serves as a guide for the operator who actually controls the machine.
