Best practice in maintaining track and associated assets, including when to renew and 'sweating the assets'.

Hi,


I will like to know how to inteprete the notation of inspection frequencies.


What does 2/1, 1/0.5 and 0.5/0.25 represent?


Appreciate it.

Hi, 


Would be interested to know if any members have tried a resistance drill as a scientific means of assessing the internal condition of timber sleepers and bearers and giving early warning of deterioration? See explanation here:

Using google to search I cannot find any reference to this equipment being used by track maintainers.


I will be starting a trial with one from iml next week. ( https://www.iml-service.com/product/iml-powerdrill/ ) and will share results via this blog as members may be interested.


Thanks.
