Lifting should commence from the down hill end carried out in the direction of rising grade in case of single line It should proceed in the opposite direction to traffic, in case of double line, care being taken not to exceed the easement grade. Correct level pegs should be fixed at suitable intervals, before lifting is commenced. Lifting Of Track – Lifting of track will become necessary during regarding and for elimination of minor sags, which develop through improper maintenance or yielding soil, to keep a good top. He should check the accuracy of the spirit level/gauge and straight edge every month, the result of this examination being entered in the Mate’s diary book. Examination of tools and equipment – The Permanent Way Inspector should examine every month and replace, when necessary, worn out tools and equipment.

Figures should be painted in black on white background. Custody Of Gang Tools – For the safe custody of gang tools, boxes should be provided at appropriate locations with proper locking arrangements. They may be provided near gang quarters, gate lodges or in stations. The Gangmate shall ensure that all tools are deposited in the tool box after working hours and kept locked.

Stiff steering can be caused by lack of lubrication. Check the tires, and if they are worn on either side, the rack may be loose on the frame or the outboard/inboard tie rod joints are worn. If there are any signs of fluid leaks, they should be repaired. Re-place any torn rubber mounts, and tighten the rack in place.

Where the rails are affected by the dropping of engine ashes, such as at ash pits. On routes identified for running of 22.1 Tonne axle load wagons, 60-kg rails shall be used on all routes. Standard Sections of Rails – (Advance Correction Slip No. 117 ) General- Rail sections are normally selected to suit the standard of loading and the speeds. The other important factor which must govern the choice of a rail section is the traffic carried so that adequate service life could be obtained. While fixing cotters for CST.9 plates, it shall be ensured that the tapered side of the cotter is in contact with the sloped face of the CST.9 plate and the cotters are split sufficiently so that they remain tight. Corrosion of tie bars inside the cast iron plate resulting in removal and adjustment becoming difficult.

Ordinary fish-plated track could be converted into three rail panel, wherever all other conditions for SWR are satisfied. Repressed Fish-Plates -The repressed fishplates are those which are hot forged so as to form a bulge in the middle part of the fish-plate conforming to the wear most prevalent. The correct maintenance of gauge and cross levels and proper packing.

Importantly, we created new classifiers for each assay (i.e., one RF classifier for healthy vs. 3 dpi, another for healthy vs. 21 dpi, and so on). We used a 75%/25% split of training and testing data. As there was roughly an equal amount of data from the healthy/disease conditions, we based the splitting on random selection. The accuracy results presented in this paper were based on test data not included in the training set to demonstrate the generalizability of the models. The locomotor deficits observed after spinal cord injury are pronounced compared with the less obvious deficits resulting from mild-to-moderate brain injuries.

Insert the canopy screws provided into the holes and secure tightly. Install the switch plate cover with the two screws provided. Into the outlet box and secure with the two screws provided. On one side of the outlet box and the ungrounded wires on the other side of the box. Be careful not to pinch any wire connections. Remove the shipping blocks from the motor.

All spikes, screws and keys should be driven home, the sleepers properly packed and crib and shoulder ballast should be compacted. Rail im invited destination plantation. do anchors should be provided wherever necessary. The fishing surfaces of the fish-plate and the rails are cleaned with a wire brush.

The notched surface should be tested with a template. The two notched bearing surfaces will be in one plane when the template sits evenly and does not rock, as shown in Fig. Annexure 2/16 describes the details of the method of notching to be carried out in the sleeper.

An ideal situation would be to provide for time allowance for working the machines in the working time table. The block time should be interpolated in the master chart for passenger and goods trains that is prepared with every change in time table. It is as much the responsibility of the Operating Department as that of the Engineering Department to ensure provision of adequate time for economical working of machines. For this purpose it is desirable to frame a programme of working the machines in consultation with the Operating Department.
