Heavier loads, higher speeds, and a greater concern for safety are creating a greater emphasis on railroad track structure. Yet the number of current books on railroad track is indeed small. This book is an attempt to present a modern treatment of track and its components in the English language. Although the author it associated with the Indian Railways, the book is pertinent to American practice, and contains many references to specific American practices. The book covers rails, ties, fasteners, ballast, soils, track assembly, track maintenance and track modernization. It also covers concrete ties, welded rail, and high speed track.
