Mar 08, 2016
UIC54 & UIC60 rail joint bar

Among the typical standards of railway joint bars, such as AREMA standard rail joint, UIC standard rail joint, GB standard rail joint, AS standard rail joint and so on, UIC (International Union of Railway) standard rail joint is very popular in the railway market, especially the UIC 54 and UIC60 rail joint bar.
Compared with most rails which are connected by a railway splice bar, some railway tracks can also be joined together through welding. Usually, two or three holes will be drilled in the end of the rail tracks for splices. The hole spacing pattern, also called “drilling”, is measured from the end of the rail to the center of the first hole and from the center of the first hole to the center of the second hole and so on. And the typical drillings might be 2-1/2" x 5" or 3-1/2" x 6" x 6".

Why do some railway fishplates have no holes ? 

railway-fishplate-with-no-holes

As we all know, the railway fishplate is an important component of railway track system. With the help of track bolt, the railway fishplate can be fastened stably to ensure the safety of railway transportation. Totally, there are four or six holes in the railway fishplate, but as to some railway fishplates, there are no holes on the surface, why?
Because the railway fishplates are usually fastened with the help of track bolts. But sometimes, in order to ensure the immobility of the railway fishplates, the railway fishplates can also be welded to the tracks. So in that condition, there are no holes on the surface of railway fishplates just to improve the convenience for welding.
