  23. Moveable Point Frog MOVEABLE POINT KNUCKLE RAIL

  24. Flange Bearing Frog

  25. Frog Details AREMA Portfolio Plan 618-89

  26. Turnout Size and Speed Turnout size is ratio of length to spread measured at the frog: 2” 3” 9” Number 9 The higher the ratio, the smaller the angle, thus the higher the speed. General rule of thumb: Double the size and round off to get the speed through the turnout (straight move speed is not affected on a tangential turnout)

  27. Purpose of the Guard Rail Not all turnouts require guard rails: self-guarded frogs, moveable point frogs

  37. Crossings Railroad Crossing • Two tracks crossing each other, sometimes referred to as a “Railroad Crossing At Grade”. The combined hardware is a “Diamond”. Road Crossing • Where a railroad and highway cross at grade. Also called an “At-Grade Crossing” or “Highway/Rail Intersection”

  38. Railroad Crossing AREMA Portfolio Plans 700 to 793

  39. OWLS (One Way Low Speed) Frog

  40. Crossovers Two turnouts on parallel tracks that allow trains to cross over from one track to the other AREMA Portfolio Plan 912
