Ribbonrail model railway tracks and supplies include straight or curved track alignment gauges of a variety of lengths for your HO and N scale model railroads. Shop now! It is the distance (in inches or millimeters) from the midpoint of the string line to the gauge of the reference rail. The design horizontal alignment for tangent track is zero (perfect straight line on the horizontal layout). The design horizontal alignment on the curved track in the United States is 1 inch for each degree of curvature.

The running of the trains over the railway track is inducing vertical and lateral forces that, in time, are affecting the track alignment, changing incrementally the installed track and causing track irregularities. On curved track this deterioration process is more significant due to the additional effect of the lateral (centrifugal) acceleration. The book on Railway Curves was originally published in March by Shri V B Sood, the then professor, IRICEN Track, IRICEN. I hope that the book will be found useful by the field engineers involved in laying and maintenance of curves. Pune Ajay Goyal November Director IRICEN, Pune Alignment.

They routinely check a wide range of factors critical to safe track: rail and rail joints, gauge and alignment, crossties, grade crossings, and more.

Track alignment. A road takes up a great deal of land, usually many times more then the amount needed for a railway. It cuts a wide swathe through the landscape. The extra width is needed to give vehicles a safe margin on either side, and also freedom to move across when the need arises, for example to overtake or to avoid an obstruction.

the track which is equally as important in ensuring a safe and comfortable ride for the train and its passengers or freight.

The infrastructure diagram here shows the principal parts of an electrified, double-track line. The total width across the two-track alignment will be about 15 m (50 ft File Size: 1MB.

Introduction. Railway design is the problem of selecting an economical alignment based on topography, soil conditions, socioeconomic factors, and environmental impacts such as air pollution and noise as well as expected level of service of the railway in terms File Size: 20KB.

Out-of-gauge rails and poor rail alignment between track sections are the most likely causes of derailments on straight or curved track. The easiest way to check for proper rail spacing is to use an NMRA multi-purpose gauge, as shown in the photo. Even new track can be out of gauge.

Actually, as I read these responses, and as I check the Walthers web site, two 5" gauges are cheaper than a single 10" gauge, so maybe the smartest thing to do is buy two 5" gauges for each radius.

What I would like to do is to have curved track alignment gauges on hand for 28", 30", and 32" radius (my current layout) and 34" and 36" for wider.

Introduction Alignment of railway line refers to the direction and position given to the centre line of the railway track. Correct track gauge extends the life of track components and train wheelsets.

This is because the forces involved are minimised. Gauge defects are the most common cause of derailments. Typically 26 running line derailments are attributed to track gauge per year in the UK.

The number in sidings and loops is far higher. In rail transport, track gauge or track gage is the spacing of the rails on a railway track and is measured between the inner faces of the load-bearing rails. All vehicles on a rail network must have running gear that is compatible with the track gauge, and in the earliest days of railways the selection of a proposed railway's gauge was a key issue.

Basic considerations and guidelines to be used in the establishment of railway horizontal and vertical alignments. he route upon which a train travels and the track is constructed is defined as an alignment. An alignment is defined in two fashions. First, the horizontal alignment defines physically where the route or track goes (mathematically the XY plane).File Size: KB.

Track geometry is one of crucial track condition parameters, closely related to many other degradation phenomena, and as it is often used for triggering the whole range of track M&R activities.

Transposing of rails is permitted where rails are curve worn or have wear angle greater than allowed, and the other rail face is in ‘as new’ condition.

The new gauge face must be reprofiled to the correct rail profile by removing any lip that has developed by File Size: KB.

For the stiffer brands of flex track such as Micro Engineering, I just ran the alignment gauge of the radius I sought through the piece of flex track over and over and over -- it took a while for the flex track to "take" the radius.

Similarly when laying track, I used the alignment tool where two curved pieces met, to preserve the radius.CHAPTER IV CURVED TRACK AND REALIGNMENT OF CURVES PART 'A' GENERAL. Where C is cant/superelevation in mm.
