Rail maintenance is necessary for the safety and security of people. Everyday many people use the train as a medium of transport to different places far and near. It is a very useful means of transport and people tend to forget that they too require maintenance for steady performance. Rail accidents can happen and for many reasons, one of the reasons being lack of track maintenance. Therefore it is highly essential that we take special care in doing that. There are many ways for railroad maintenance but in general the most obvious ways can damage the rail track.

In general over lubrication, heating, cooling, humidity and passing current all these can infuse an oxidized track. Dissimilar metals react to these conditions making the tracks oxidized which is hard to clean. If any lubricant like oil is used that can prove to be slippery and rails may not work. Again dust, hair, saw dust all these cannot be used for maintenance as they can create more favourable condition for much more oxidization. Along with all these problems even dirt will build up, leading in more and more problems. One of the best and easiest ways to clean rail tracks is to run non abrasive wet rail and wheel cleaning car in the front end of the locomotive. Collect the dirt at the rear end of the locomotive for better railroad maintenance. Generally a non toxic and slowly evaporating liquid is used which makes the cleaning more easy. Cleaning and maintaining tracks increases your performance, enhances safety and gives you a smooth ride.

If you are looking for ways to rail maintenance then this is the best way to do so. The importance and essentiality of the rail should be kept in mind then finding a solution would become much easy.
