A STITCH IN TIME

Nonwoven synthetic fabrics are finding a role in track structures, serving to prevent soil fines from infiltrating ballast and allowing drainage of water into the subgrade. Experiences of Missouri Pacific, Chicago and North Western, Southern and Southern Pacific are described. MP uses the materials routinely, Southern is installing 2 million square yards under a new classification yard and SP has a fully instrumented test track section in Texas.
