The author discusses the differences between the realignment of curves by the old manual method and the use of track aligning machines for this purpose. The methods of reducing the errors for the mechanized realignment of curves are compared, and graphs are shown depicting the conditions for the various methods. The conclusion reached is that be using the two chord procedures, it is possible to correct the alignment to double the accuracy.
