Design criteria are presented for use by qualified engineers in designing
naval facility trackage for both railroads and wide gage portal cranes.
Criteria for railroad trackage include those for roadbeds, ballast, ties,
rails, track grade, turnouts, crossovers, highway crossings, sidings,
warehouse trackage, track scales, and yards; those for portal crane trackage
cover rails, rail supports, turnouts, crossings, alignment, components,
curves, and design procedures.
