why are wooden slippers kept below the railway line?
Asked by | 6th Nov, 2008, 09:32: PM
Railway tracks are laid on large sized wooden sleepers so that the thrust due to the weight of train is spread over large area .This reduces the pressure on the ground which would prevent the yielding of the ground.
