Performance Evaluation of New Generation Ballast Cleaning Machines Depending on Ballast Bed Contamination and Moisture

The paper considers the necessity to develop the modern models of the existing ballast cleaning machines due to the gross wear. The new models might ensure the greatest energy efficiency in the performance. At present, the design of ballast cutting machines does not take into account a number of parameters significantly reducing their actual production, and they are required to modify.

Impact Assessment of Decisions Made in Construction Organisation Project on Estimated Cost of Transport Facilities Construction

Based on the analysis of expert opinions on 40 railway bridges, the most frequently encountered solutions were identified, on the basis of which the estimated cost in the bridge construction changes. The authors have determined the position of each cost element to the sum total of withdrawn monetary resources. The ways to minimize this cost element have been obtained.

Operation Features of Electric Locomotive Traction Motors of Taishet - Takshimo Northern Direction of the Eastern Polygon of Russian Railways

The authors have established the starting up and operation of the electric locomotive of the Eastern Polygon of Russian Railways after long-term holding at a low temperature in winter, with increased power, current and winding temperature due to the transition of bearings from rolling mode to sliding behaviour, with a multiple increase in power, loss of friction in the roller-ring contacts of the bearing cause intensive ageing of insulation. It is proposed to heat up the traction motors during the holding.
Keywords: Eastern Polygon of Russian Railways, low temperature in winter, long-term holding of an electric locomotive, increased power of traction motors during starting up
