Five methods were tested to strengthen the black cotton subsoil under a section of the Great Indian Peninsula Bombay-Nagpur main line. One method used a wooden sleeper mattress under the ballast. Two methods used trough sleepers. The fourth method used a reinforced-concrete mattress under the present track. The fifth method used a corrugated-iron mattress. Only the reinforced-concrete mattress stabilized the track.
