The recorder, known as the Gauge Master P.11 consists of a 3-wheel chassis on to which are built the various instruments used for measuring and recording rail track dimensions and superelevation as it is propelled along the track. All measurements are graphically recorded on a registering strip and actual measurements can be read off as they are recorded. The instrument is provided with a driving stick for propelling purposes, the single operator walking beside the instrument, a warning bell fitted to the recorder rings when the instrument is passing over a portion of the track where gauge tolerances have been exceeded.
