The company I'm currently working for are looking to run internal assessments for recently trained Handback engineers.

What I'm after is a load of questions for Handback engineer assessments, I need to put together about 4 or 5 assessments with different questions. Need to make sure these guys out there know their stuff as this is a highly responsible job.

Just need to make sure everything is done properly . Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Hi Simon,

We currently do Track handback courses and assesssments. We have developed our own assessment material over the years feel it is inappropriate to share this material openly. The best way to develop them is to use the standards and TEF3203 forms and create scenarios for each form/area such as what is the worst twist/gauge allowed in a given situation or what checks do you make on adjustment switches or what would the minimum CRT(W) be for a given situation. 

Regards. Matt Beatham, Intertrain UK.

Iam a Railway Technician with The Tanzania Zambia Railway Authority, currently we are faced with problems of poor curve alignment along our mainline. We are supposed to manually realign these distorted curves because our Mechanical Tamping Machine is defective. Is there any curve realignment software available that we can use to assist in calculating the curve data before realigning these curves?

Could you not just use hallade coupled with software like design route to smooth our existing curves?
