With railways endeavoring to reduce running times, in addition to increasing trains speeds, particular emphasis attaches to improving the design of switch points and track connections in stations to avoid speed reductions there. This article deals with the application of theory and practical experience to the design of switches, from the points through the frog. The importance of a proper design of switch configurations is emphasized by charts of force reactions of vehicles moving through switches.
