Exchange of Experience as Composed Traffic Safety of Trains

D. A. Nenashev

Safety of train operation on the Russian Federation railroad network depends first of all on the specialists performing non-destructive testing of the rails and elements of the point operating gear. The article analyses some of the main mistakes made by defectogram interpreters when estimating signals produced by defects and artificial reflectors in the rails in recording these signals on sections tested with mobile and plug-in NDT devices. Based on the analysis carried out, practical recommendations for specialists dealing with mobile devices and for defectogram interpreters are provided.
