    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies performance requirements for as-rolled and head-hardened steel rail, covering track compatibility, service life, material integrity, connection, maintenance and handling. Asymmetric switch rails and elevated guardrails are also covered. Appendices five deemed to comply solutions for profiles, tolerances, chemical composition, mechanical properties and specify test methods for inclusions and surface finish. Guidance to purchasers, information on compliance and on residual stresses in rail is also given in appendices.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for as-rolled and hardened steel rails made from continuously cast blooms and profiles for asymmetric switch rails and elevated guardrails for railway purposes.NOTES: 1 Guidelines to purchasers are given in Appendix A.2 Guidance on the means for demonstrating compliance with this Standard is given in Appendix B.3 Information on residual stresses in rail is given in Appendix C.
