The Permanent Way Institution exists purely for the world of rail infrastructure engineering. We provide our members with a unique forum to share and gain knowledge, experience and competency together.
We are an inclusive Institution which means we welcome anyone to join us who is interested in rail. From track professionals to train enthusiasts, we are a community of like-minded individuals who love to think, talk and learn about engineering in this field.
As the rail industry’s dedicated infrastructure engineering technical institution, the PWI is committed to ensuring that its process for professional registration adds value to the applicant, their employer and ultimately the rail industry.
The book is aimed at a wide range of people who need to know more about S&C; be they designers, maintainers or others involved in the infrastructure or operation of a railway network. The various configurations are covered which include the range of switches and common and obtuse crossings made up of built, welded and cast manganese derivatives. S&C designs are continuously changing and being improved but the basic principles remain the same.
