PUBLICATIONSMANUAL FOR RAILWAY ENGINEERINGThe Manual for Railway Engineering (MRE) is an annual publication released every April. The Manual consistsof more than 5,000 pages of railway engineering reference material, the recommended practices for theindustry. It contains principles, data, specifications, plans and economics pertaining to the engineering, designand construction of the fixed plant of railways (except signals and communications), and allied services andfacilities. The material is developed by AREMA technical committees and is published as a guide to railways inestablishing their individual policies and practices relative to the subjects, activities and facilities covered inthe Manual, with the aim of assisting them to engineer and construct a railway plant which will have inherentqualities of safe and economical operation as well as low maintenance cost. Chapters are grouped into fourgeneral categories, each in a separate volume: Track, Structures, Infrastructure and Passenger, and SystemsManagement. The Manual is available in print or downloadable format. Individual Chapters are also availablein downloadable, PDF format.COMMUNICATIONS & SIGNALS MANUALThe Communications & Signals Manual is an annual publication released every January. It is a manual ofrecommended practice written by AREMA technical committees in the interest of establishing uniformity,promoting safety or efficiency and economy. This Manual offers recommendations representing currentsignal practices for new installations and for replacement on existing installations when general renewal orreplacement is to be made. The Manual is available in print or downloadable format. Individual Sections arealso available in downloadable, PDF format.PORTFOLIO OF TRACKWORK PLANSThe Portfolio of Trackwork Plans consists of plans and specifications that relate to the design, details, materialsand workmanship for switches, frogs, turnouts & crossovers, crossings, rails and other special trackwork.This is a companion volume to the Manual for Railway Engineering. The Portfolio is available in print anddownloadable format.PRACTICAL GUIDE TO RAILWAY ENGINEERINGThe NEW Practical Guide to Railway Engineering, Third Edition is an in-depth and excellent reference toolcovering many fundamentals.

PUBLICATIONS (continued)GUIDELINES TO BEST PRACTICES FOR HEAVY HAUL RAILWAYOPERATIONS: WHEEL AND RAIL INTERFACE ISSUES; BOOK 1 BY THEINTERNATIONAL HEAVY HAUL ASSOCIATION (IHHA) – MAY 2001The Wheel/Rail Interface Issues focuses on the critical area of the wheel/rail contact that is so importantto successful railway operations. At the interface there must be low friction to permit moving heavy loadswith little resistance; however, there must be enough friction to provide tractive effort, braking effort andsteering of the wheel. Neither the wear rate nor the failure rate must be so great that the cost-effectiveheavy haul operations are threatened. This book contains discussions on the Vehicle/Track Interactions,Wheel/Rail Interfaces, Cost Benefit analysis, Optimizing Heavy Haul Maintenance Practices and CaseStudies of Successful Heavy Haul Railways. All Best Practice books include a CD-ROM.GUIDELINES TO BEST PRACTICES FOR HEAVY HAUL RAILWAYOPERATIONS: INFRASTRUCTURES CONSTRUCTION AND MAINTENANCEISSUES; BOOK 2 BY THE INTERNATIONAL HEAVY HAUL ASSOCIATION (IHHA)– JUNE 2009Track for Heavy Haul focuses on the issues involving the rail, track, ballast and sub-ballast for cost effectiveoperation of heavy haul systems. The sections in this book were developed with the expertise of over 45 authorswho are recognized as leading authorities in their respective fields. This book is the most complete review of allaspects of heavy haul track systems, maintenance, inspections, economics, and components assembled to date.All Best Practice books include a CD-ROM.GUIDELINES TO BEST PRACTICES FOR HEAVY HAUL RAILWAYOPERATIONS: MANAGEMENT OF THE WHEEL AND RAIL INTERFACE;BOOK 3 BY THE INTERNATIONAL HEAVY HAUL ASSOCIATION (IHHA) –JUNE 2015This book contains discussion of wheel/rail interaction, descriptions of how to balance wear and fatigue ofwheels and rails, derailment prevention practices, vehicle/track condition monitoring, and benefits of railgrinding and friction modification. All Best Practice books include a CD-ROM.DESIGN OF MODERN STEEL RAILWAY BRIDGES BY JOHN F. UNSWORTHThis book examines the engineering properties of structural steel typically used in modern steel railwaybridge design and fabrication. It presents criteria for the maximum effects from moving loads and their usein developing design live railway loads. It complements and explains the recommended practices of AREMA’sManual for Railway Engineering (MRE) design specifications. The new edition has been updated throughoutto reflect changes in the field. It encompasses current design methods used for steel railway bridges in bothSI and Imperial (US Customary) units. A practical reference and learning tool, it provides a fundamentalunderstanding of AREMA recommended practice that enables more effective design.Complete order form on following pagesAmerican Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association 4501 Forbes Blvd., Suite 130 Lanham, Maryland 20706 T: 1.301.459.3200
