The Great Manual of Track Maintenance

History of the mechanization of track construction – The track system – New construction and reconstruction – Loading – Monitoring and measuring – Rail treatment – Track geometry correction – Tamping

Because of its size, The Great Handbook of Track Maintenance is published in two volumes with numerous color illustrations and supplementary tables. This first volume includes seven chapters: the history of mechanization of track construction, the track system, new construction and reconstruction, track loading, monitoring and measurement, rail treatment methods and track geometry correction using tamping.

The book covers all aspects in theory and practice of new construction and reconstruction, maintenance of ballasted track and slab track.


It is aimed at maintenance engineers and track builders, civil engineers, architects, infrastructure managers, railroad engineers, students of railroad technology and civil engineering, people interested in railroads or otherwise professionally connected with them. It is designed as a handbook and reference work.


We are looking forward to hearing from you!
