With heavy haul railways operating at the threshold of endurance for materials used in track and rolling stock, problems associated with rail wear, wheel wear, rail corrugation and long trains are routine. Ways of countering many of these problems were discussed at the Heavy Haul Railways Conference in Australia sponsored by five railways in the western part of that nation. Operating strategies, cars, motive power, track structures, communications, signaling and data processing for heavy-haul systems are included in the presentations from railways all over the world.
