the road consisting of railroad track and roadbed
- The rail-line was carried under the Tsugaru Strait to Hokkaido.
- The applicable specifications for the rail fastening system in plain line and switches and crossings are the following:
- The contact wire height on the Continental Main Line, (the interface between Network Rail, the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, and Eurotunnel) the contact wire height varies between 5935 mm and 5870 mm.
- Where vehicles are fitted with fixed electric tail lamps, the centre line of the tail lamp shall be less than 1800 mm above rail level;
- The height of the centre line of the draw hook shall be between 950 mm and 1045 mm above rail level in all conditions of loading.
- The height of the centre line of the buffing gear shall be between 940 mm and 1065 mm above rail level in all conditions of loading.
- The height of the centre line of the draw hook shall be between 920 mm and 1045 mm above rail level in all conditions of loading.
- Furthermore, the strategy of developing TBE is fully in line with the Commission’s transport policy as it is conducive to the road–to-rail modal shift.
- In line with technical and scientific progress, safety should be further improved, when reasonably practicable and taking into account the competitiveness of the rail transport mode.
- Electrical resistance between all metal parts of the rolling stock and the rail shall be low enough to ensure that rising short circuit current will cause disconnection of circuit line breaker (e. g. when the catenary falls on a wagon).
- The requirements for the conventional rail infrastructure and rolling stock register content with regard to the control-command assemblies are specified in Annex C (line specific and train specific characteristics).
- The performance to be achieved by the Energy subsystem shall correspond to the relevant performance as specified for each category of line of the trans-European high-speed rail system, with respect to:
- In the case of high-speed rail systems, an overhead contact line with catenary suspension is applied where the contact wire(s) is/are suspended from one or more longitudinal catenaries.
- Two red tail lamps shall be provided at the rear end of the train, arranged on the horizontal axis at the same height above the rail level, symmetrical about the centre line, and at a minimum of 1300 mm apart.
- At the high speeds envisaged for the trans-European high-speed rail system, the interaction of overhead contact line and pantograph represents a very important aspect in establishing reliable power transmission without undue disturbances to railway installations and the environment.
