why are wooden slippers kept below the railway line?
Asked by | 8th Nov, 2008, 09:43: PM
The railway tracks are laid on large sized wooden sleepers so that the thrust due to the weight of the train is spread over a large area .This reduces the pressure on the ground which would prevent the yielding of ground.
