Abstract. Bridges over rivers and bodies of water are an integral part of the railway infrastructure. Maintenance of bridges due to the presence of an aggressive aquatic environment for humans and technology and the lack of a sufficient number of diving groups is laborious and is objectively carried out relatively rarely. The article discusses the Russian development in the field of hydroacoustic technologies for examining the underwater part of bridge piers using robotic means. The use of such technologies reduces the labour intensive and improves the operational reliability of artificial structures.

Abstract. Strengthening the substructure of a seamless track on long-term operated railway lines in the difficult engineering, geological and climatic conditions of Siberia is an urgent task. Such a task requires finding solutions taking into account the actual input-thermal mode of the operated structure of the substructure on the repaired sections of the track. To determine the main parameters of this mode, labor-intensive research is required. This is especially true for the conditions of BAM and permafrost.
Obviously, there is a need to improve the skills of engineering and technical workers of track facilities.
Automation of keeping the Journal of the PU-74 form
Keywords: automated systems, PU-74, journal, planning, program, document flow.

Abstract. The article describes the experience of creating and using software designed to automate the processes of maintaining documentation in the distances of engineering structures of Russian Railways. The functionality of the program, its advantages and disadvantages, as well as the prospects for further development of this direction are considered in detail.
