The L.M.S.R. is at present making use of welding for four main categories of trackwork, namely, re-conditioning worn and damaged switches and crossings; welding of rails into longer lengths; welding electric track components; and welding other track components, such as buffer stops, damaged rails, and wheel stops. For repairs on site portable oxy-acetylene equipment is used, and the welders usually work in pairs so that a lookout man protects both welders. The welding of water troughs into long lengths has also proved satisfactory.
