Guidelines for An Alternative Transit Switch Design
Report Number: RRD-072
This digest offers design guidelines for a new transit switch based partially on longer lasting, better-performing switiches that were developed in the early 20th century, some of which are still in operation today at transit systems.  It also summarizes the work done to develop guidelines and recommendations for an improved performance 13-ft switch for heavy rail transit service.
