The Introduction Of Global Track Gauge

The Instroduction Of Global Track  Gauge


In 1825, George Stephenson, inventor of the first passenger train, chose a track gauge of 1,435 mm. While this spacing between the rails has become the norm in many countries, it has since been modified in some areas for military reasons, making it too expensive to standardise the railway systems again. Thus, track gauges across the world vary considerably: 1,000 mm in South America and parts of Africa, 1,067 mm in southern Africa, 1,520 mm in Russia and Eastern Europe, 1,668 mm in Spain and Ireland…
