Crossings

Are designed to permit continuous traffic through the intersection of two or more lines.

We manufacture all our crossings under A.R.E.A. specifications & design.

The most common are:

  • Manganese Steel Insert Frog Crossing.
  • Solid Manganese Steel Crossings.
  • Bolted Rail Crossings (2 or 3 rails).
  • Special Crossings.

Bolted Rail Crossing (2 or 3 rails)

Nortrak-Damy manufactures rail crossings for light and heavy duty. Our crossings are made with hardened rail or heat treated depending on your specific needs. Crossings can be configured in Rail Frog Crossings and Bolted Rail Crossings for low or high angle intersections. They can also be configured in 2 or 3 rail sections. Bolted Rail Crossings are recommended at locations where traffic and tonnage are low.

Manganese Steel Insert Frog Crossing

Manganese Steel Insert Frog Crossings are designed for high tonnage and high speed. They are most recommended when the angles are low providing a superior life-performance over the Bolted Rail Crossings

Solid Manganese Steel Crossing

Solid Manganese Steel Crossings are used where traffic is heavy and intense. They can be made of Solid Manganese Frogs or Solid Manganese Castings.

Solid Manganese Frogs are used as complete structures ready for the attachment of the connecting rails. Frogs can be furnished as either solid maganese or solid manganese self-guarded. All castings can be explosion hardened upon request.

Solid Manganese Castings have proven highly satisfactory where congested traffic conditions prevail. Castings are reinforced with an integral base for their entire length to provide a large contact area and to minimize strain on other members. Castings can be explosion hardened upon request.

Nortrak-Damy can manufacture crossings where railroad tracks intersect with port or mining rails. These crossings are manufactured under the client's specifications and can be furnished to be placed in yards over concrete or ties.
