It's called a 'Check Rail'. Usually you can see these on the inner side of curves. If a train derails on a curve, it will tend to move over the outer rail ( The wheel will climb over the outer edge of the curve). In that case, the inner wheel will touch this check rail and stop further outward movement. You can see these kinds of rails at points and switches also, where trains switch tracks.

Both terms are interchanged frequently. But normally, the term 'Guard rails' is used for the cases where there are 2 inner rails. These are usually seen on bridges and belo FOB's etc. The 'term 'check rail' is usually used for the cases like in the above pic, where the extra rail is on only one side of the tracks. However, there is no fixed definition for these terms I guess and I have seen people use both terms to refer to such track layouts.

Ques1..Can I take a pet along with me on the train? What is the process?
A: A passenger can take pet along with him in AC First Class or First Class only, provided he/she reserves either a two berth or a four berth compartment exclusively for his/her use, paying the due charges depending upon the type of train. Passengers travelling in other classes are not permitted to carry the pet along with them. But the pet can be booked and carried in the Luggage/Brake Van paying the charges depending upon the type of train. Specially designed Boxes are available in the Brake Van for this purpose. Passengers may contact the Parcel Office to book their pet.

News Entry# 131089  Travelling with pets in train cheap but complicated  
Posted by: Anupam Enosh Sarkar*^~   Added by: Tejas*^~  Jul 31 2013 (08:32)
GURGAON: Travelling with dogs by train is cheaper as compared to air travel, but it is quite complicated at the same time. Railways allows dog in first air conditioned class coaches of the train, otherwise dogs will be put in the brake van of the train along with luggage. However, despite permission to travel with your pet in the first class, if anyone objects to it, the pet will be put in the brake van irrespective of the fact the passenger has paid all the charges. Even if one decides to keep one's pets in the break van of the train, the owner will have to put the pet into a cage, make him wear a collar and a leash. Besides that, it will be the owner's responsibility to feed the dog during traveling. So, during long journey, as it is not possible for the owner to go and keep a...

tab on the pet, it becomes difficult for both the pet and the owner. Pets, especially dogs, who are accustomed to move freely in the house or sleep on sofas or beds do not like to be caged and so many pet owners do not prefer to carry their dogs by train. There are few trains which has in-built coop in the guard's coach of the train, where one can put his or her dog during travel. But the only hitch is that only one dog can be transported through this way as there is only one such coop in the train. Two dogs could be allowed, in case they belong to the same owner. Two dogs of two different owners are not allowed in this one coop as there are chances of fighting between them. A passenger who has decided to take the pet dog in break van or the coop is required to reach railway station well before in time and visit the cargo dispatch department, where charges according to weight of dog will be charged and name tag with other dispatch details written on a cardboard is put around dog's neck. The cost is quite cheap and it could be ascertained by the fact that for a dog weighing around 10kg, one will have shell out not more than Rs 100. Rules for conveyance of dogs through train (courtesy Indian railways) Dogs when carried in the break- van, air conditioned first class passenger compartments will be charged luggage rates on the basis of weights subject to a minimum charge of Rs10 per dog, but not allowed in air conditioned sleeper coaches, ac chair car coaches sleeper class and second class coaches. When carried in break-van (dog- box) 30 kg is allowed, for passengers compartments 60 kg Owners to provide collars and chains and make their own arrangements for food and water for the dog during the journey. A passenger travelling in first air condition class or first class may take a dog into the compartment only with the concurrence of fellow passengers on payment of charges If fellow passengers subsequently object to the dog remaining in the compartment, it will be removed to the guard's van, no refund being given. A woman travelling alone with children under 12 years of age in a first class compartment may take with her in the compartment one dog on payment of charges at the dog box rates, provided that if another woman enters the compartment, the dog can only be allowed to remain in the compartment with her consent.

A ride index is just a number with no units and its value gives us an indication of the riding comfort of a vehicle. The index is easily calculable during field trials by measuring the vertical/lateral accelerations using standard accelerometers.
