THE SUB-ROADBED MAKES THE TRAIN FAST.

The article is in German.  The illustration suggests a mighty iron road.



To the left: new style track structure with cross-ties laid on a slab roadway of asphalt or concrete.

To the right: traditional track structure with ballasted cross-ties.

The new approach is good for faster running, with more years between track renewals.  "Dank der modernen Bauweise können Züge mit bis zu 300 km/h auf neu gebauten Strecken fahren."
