Those unfamiliar with the particulars of the railway industry may think that if you’ve seen one track, you’ve seen them all. At Industry-Railway Suppliers, we know that’s simply not the case—and if you’re reading this, chances are you know that, too.

Of course, an obvious differentiating factor between different railway tracks in different regions is the rail gage, or gauge. These terms are commonly used interchangeably, and railroad track gauge tools can differ based on the type. The rail gage can simply refer to the distance between the two inner faces of the rail, or to a tool which is used to measure that distance or other various curvatures or wear to the rail.

In the United States, the federal safety standards for rail gauge (distance between two rails) is 4 feet, 8.5 inches, but that is far from the only measurement you’ll find necessary to the rail. Gauges must also be used to determine rail wear and to ensure rail is safe to travel, and up to standard. Depending on what these gauges specify, different types of railroad track gauge tools may be needed. There are many types of gauges (rail gauge measurement tools) for rail, and many different measurements performed to various parts of rail. Some of this is due in part to the fact that much of the railroads were built before a standardized system was set in place, and much is because as a train travels over the rail, rail becomes worn and warped over time. These gauges help determine if and where repairs on the railroad need to occur, for safety.

Our track gauges allow railroad professionals to identify this possible rail wear, and the standard distance between the tracks so there’s no question of safety. Additionally, many of our gauges come equipped with levels for an even greater sense of practicality.

The railway infrastructure has come a long way since it was first built up in the 19th century, and at Industry-Railway Suppliers, we like to think we’ve played some small part in helping ensure the safety and ease of railroad professionals since our founding in 1966.

Our railroad track gauge tools are well-made, easy to use, and backed up by our considerate customer support team—we’re ready and waiting to help you find the right rail gauge measurement, track levels, or other product to meet your needs today.
