new railway line survey

Railway Survey | New Railway Line Survey

Prior to survey the available maps of proposed area are studied. This helps in fixing suitable alignment facilitate various surveys work. The various engineering surveys which are carried out for the choice of route of a new railway line can broadly be divided in to three categories Reconnaissance Survey, Preliminary Survey and Location Survey

creep in rail

Magnitude and Direction of Creep

Creep is not constant over a given period, it is not continue in one direction or at uniform rate. Both the rails of the track may creep in same direction, perhaps both the rails reverse the direction of creep or one rail creep in opposite direction to that of other. In other words, the direction and magnitude of creep cannot be predicted.

methods for creep

Correction of Creep | Methods against Creep

There are two methods used for the correction of creep. These are Pulling back Method and Use of Creep Anchors / Anti Creepers. There are two methods used for the correction of creep. These are Pulling back Method & Use of Creep Anchors / Anti Creepers. In pulling back method the effects of creep are observed during ordinary maintenance of track.

site selection for railway station

Site Selection for Railway Station

A railway station is defined as any place on a railway line where traffic is booked and dealt with and where an authority to proceed is given to the trains. Drainage. The proposed site should be on a fairly leveled ground and it should be well drained. There should be plentiful supply for water at the site of station.
