Insulated rail joints: Improving performance at high maintenance track sections

27 February 2019 | By , ,

Signalling systems are part of every modern rail network. These systems create a safe and efficient operation by employing the rail as an electrical conduit for train location. To accomplish this, insulated rail joints (IRJs) are used to create blocks or independent sections of track by electrical isolation. Shortened IRJ…
