Abstract: This article presents data on experimental verifications of predicted speeds along combination of railroad switches. Criteria of motion kinematics, strength, stress–strain behavior, wheel stability on rail, impact on passengers within the limits of switches used for speed determination are given including their values obtained by direct tests on route. Recommendations are given with regard to experimental predictions of speeds along combinations of railroad switches in railroad yard necks.
