Railway refers to the system of transport that involves vehicles running on rails, which in turn are located on tracks. The connected series of rail vehicles is known as a train. Since the frictional resistance on rails is lower than rubber-tired vehicles, trains can be attached in a longer sequence. Railway transport can be powered either by electricity or produce their own power, mostly through a diesel engine. There are two major types of tracks which are used in railway systems - ballasted track and ballastless track. The various processes, which are a part of railway construction are laying bottom ballast, providing anchorage, laying steel rail, laying top ballast and installing rail anchor and rail brace. The topics included in this book on railway systems are of utmost significance and bound to provide incredible insights to readers. It is compiled in such a manner, that it will provide in-depth knowledge about the theory and practice of railway systems. This book will serve as a reference to a broad spectrum of readers.
