QUESTION: 3

### Study the following statements regarding creep. (i) Creep is greater on curves than on tangent railway track. (ii) Creep in new rails is more than that in old rails. (iii) Creep is more on steep gradients than on level track. The correct answer is

Solution:
QUESTION: 4

The maximum degree of curvature for Metre Gauge is limited to

Solution:
QUESTION: 5

Cant deficiency occurs when a vehicle travels around a curve at

Solution:

Cant deficiency is the difference, between the equilibrium cant necessary for maximum permissible speed on a curve and actual cant provided. So if a vehicle travels at a speed higher than the equilibrium speed, cant deficiency occurs whereas if a vehicle travels at a speed lower than equilibrium speed, cant excess occurs.
