William W. Hay defines excellence in engineering as an economic combination of traffic, distance, curvature, rise and fall, and gradient. The concepts described as related to the location process apply equally to new construction, realignment, and major rehabilitation. This is particularly important given the maturity of the rail and highway transport systems (e.g., few new rail lines are being constructed today).

Begin with aerial photogrammetry or a topographical mapClick here for an example aerial photo for a location we will design for in lab this semester, near Berwick IowaClick here for a closeup of the existing rail line through BerwickClick here for terraserver aerial photography of the worldClick here for an example USGS DRG (digital raster graphic) with topo mapA good scale is 200 (1″ = 200′) – same as 1:2400 (error ~4′)Contours at this scale are usually provided at 2′ to 5’intervalsConsiderations:Grade rules operating costs. It determines the number of trains required to haul a specific amount of traffic. Ruling grade determines operating speed, number of locomotives needed and tonnage (number of cars) that can be accommodated ina single train. Alternatively, the tonnage rating for a specific line gives the maximum tonnage that can be hauled in a single train, given that the train may have to stop along its route (see lecture on motive power)Follow the terrain where possibleConnect long tangents with long curvesDon’t mix long, small curves with short, sharp curvesConsider grades and curves and satisfy criteria (balance)Directness is not very important in rail design for operating costs, but may be very important for ROW costs in relatively level terrain.Crossings – minimizeImpacts (environmental, social)If federal funds involved or interstate, must do an EIS (Environmental Impact Statement)covering …Environmental ImpactAdverse Impact During ImplementationPresentation of AlternativesShort Term vs. Long Term AffectsIrretrievable Resources NeededAn example of one environmental issue related to rail operations is noise impact Click here to see what the CN Railroad has to say about the issue
