  Track geometry is three-dimensional geometry of track layouts and associated measurements used in design, construction and maintenance of railroad subject is used in the context of standards, speed limits and other regulations in the areas of track gauge, alignment, elevation, curvature and track surface. [1] Although, the geometry of the tracks is three-dimensional by nature, . TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Report Track Design Handbook for Light Rail Transit, Second Edition provides guidelines and descriptions for the design of various common types of light rail transit (LRT) track. The track structure types include ballasted track, direct fixation (“ballastless”) track, and embedded track.

Technology helps railroads achieve safety milestones, minimize their impact on the natural environment and maintain a competitive edge in today’s fast-paced global economy. In the coming years, railroads look to build upon these successes. While rail technology is pervasive, the industry is on the verge of an exciting new era of innovation.

Track Geometry Measurement System (TGMS) The Track Geometry Measurement System (TGMS) provides accurate and reliable track data for immediate and long-term maintenance planning. The system can be installed on virtually any rail bound vehicle and provides all the data necessary for the optimum management of track assets.

advancement of autonomous track geometry measurement to improve rail safety by increasing the availability of track geometry data for safety and maintenance planning purposes. This goal can be reached through the development of Autonomous Track Geometry Measurement Systems (ATGMS) that: 1.

Information on subway systems organized by continent, and news, links, literature, and a gallery of general subway information. Use of Track Geometry Measurements for Maintenance Planning WILLEM EBERSOHN AND ERNEST T. SELIG Track geometry measurements are discussed as a means of evaluating the functional condition of track.

Examples are given of track vertical profile geometry data from a heavy haul line obtained by a laser survey and by a track recording car.Attended track geometry A dedicated measurement train can record and compute not only the required parameters but also other asset condition information.

This could include for example structure gauging, OHL condition and conductor rail alignment.Keywords: track geometry, turnout geometry, track infrastructure database, track recording trolley, track diagnostics. 1 Introduction New projects related to light rail, metro, and trams are ongoing all over the world.

The key is to promote the development of attractive alternatives to the use.
