DESIGNING FOR SPEED AND HIGH LOADS

In upgrading existing lines and building new ones, the inevitability of higher speeds and heavier cars must receive maximum attention. The development of new equipment should be kept within the existing technology of wheel on rail. Track geometry and track components determine the ability of track to sustain any level of operation. The role of concrete cross ties and concrete slab track are discussed, along with the potential in conventional track components. Future requirements for signaling appear beyond existing system capabilities.
