Dimensions wagons

In order to avoid contact with the station wagon structure located near the railway rolling stock or in adjacent road, all cars built according to certain limiting outline - dimensions. For its size trucks, passenger cars and refrigerated stock relevant dimensions of rolling stock.

The gauge of the rolling mean limiting cross perpendicular to the rail shape, which, without going outside, must be placed horizontally mounted on the forward path as the unladen and laden in not only new cars, but also having the maximum normalized tolerances and wear. Rolling stock of any of its part should not protrude beyond its dimensions.

Wagons former USSR railways of 1520 mm were built on the basis of the requirements of GOST 9238-73 on dimensions of the rolling stock of T, l-T, 0-T 01-T 02-T 03 - T

Dimension T is designed for coaches who request separate enclosed areas reconstructed railroads of the USSR and the MPR.

Dimension l-T is designed for rolling stock, admitted to trading on all the railways of the USSR and the MPR, 0-T 01-T 02-T - for rolling stock, admitted to trading on the railways of the USSR in 1520-mm knee and foreign countries 1435 mm. In size 03-T cars were built to access by rail across Europe and Asia.

In the envelope 0-T built cars, drawn not only on the roads of the Soviet Union and the Mongolian People's Republic, but also in some of the reconstructed arteries of the member states for Railway Cooperation (ORC). For cars traded in most areas of roads OSJD member countries, there is a size 01-T. In the envelope 02-T cars were built to access by rail OSJD member countries and other countries of Europe. All passenger cars USSR railways built in size 0-T. The exceptions are two-story with a dome cars on display area, built on size 1-T, and wagons in international traffic, which in size relevant dimensions 03 · T. Refrigerated rolling stock built by Dimensions 1-T.

Size cars must also meet the side obstacles railways, which is called the limiting cross perpendicular to the rail shape, into which, in addition to the rolling stock, must not enter any part of the structures and facilities, as well as lying about the way materials, spare parts and equipment for the except devices intended for direct interaction with the rolling stock.

The railways of the former Soviet Union operated two side obstacles: C and C. Dimension S is designed for paths, plant and equipment total rail network and access routes from the station to the adjoining industrial sites. Dimension C must be observed all over the access road from the station to the adjoining territory of industrial enterprises: factories, workshops, depots, river and sea ports, freight yards, warehouses and other industrial enterprises.
