This specialist DB book aims to serve as a training

This specialist DB book aims to serve as a training manual and information base to DB Netz AG employees involved in the planning and execution of work on permanent ways and the permanent-way companies; it provides information on the complex interplay of personnel, machinery, devices and permanent-way material used during preventive maintenance of the permanent-way.

The work techniques used during the renewal and installation of tracks and turnouts, including ballast cleaning and mechanical tamping and lining, are described clearly and comprehensively. The book looks at track formation improvement methods and also the rectification of individual defects.

Furthermore, the reader is also familiarised with inspection and scheduled maintenance tasks and the acceptance of permanent-way work.

The relatively new topic of ballast-less permanent-ways (slab tracks) is addressed and the authors also take a look at what further developments have been made to permanent-way machines and work techniques.
