German Federal Railway has started service tests on five designs of concrete trackbed installed in a 1.7 km section of the Ingolstadt-Munich main line. The five types of track represent development from existing designs installed on isolated sections of the DB network, such as those on the 250-km/h section between Bielefeld and Hamm. A simpler sixth design is undergoing preliminary tests on S-Bahn track north of Munich. Monitoring will be undertaken by two universities in the program scheduled to extend until 1982; evaluation of results will help DB select the most suitable system for use in tunnels and on viaducts along a high-speed route to be built in 1985.
