Abstract. The precinct method of servicing the infrastructure of the track complex provides for the widespread use of mechanized methods, in which a one-time closure of train traffic is necessary. However, the features of this method cannot be implemented with the same parameters of technological «windows» as with a near-current system. An increase in the duration of the technological «window» by 30-35% will increase labor productivity and the production of mechanized complexes by 1.6–1.7 times. Even greater efficiency can be achieved by providing «blind windows», which are widely used in a number of foreign countries.

Abstract. The article discusses organization of rail lubrication on Russian Railways network using a number of innovative solutions that were implemented in recent years. Technical and economic calculations of reduced operational costs due to implemented innovations are shown in the article. Technical specifications of modernized SPR — type rail lubricators are also shown. The article introduces the concept of stationary lubricators maintenance on a lifecycle contract basis.
The article presents results of the study of minimizing the consumption of lubricants in the «wheel-rail» system. Based on the application of the theory of planning experiment, the numerical simulation of the circular slip path depending on the wheel radius, the difference between the radius of the contact circles of the crest and the wheel rim with the rail head, the angle of the ridge and the angle of run. As a result of the steep ascent by the Boxing-Wilkson method, the geometric parameters of the wheel-rail system are obtained, which allow to reduce the circular slip path by 30%. These results make it possible to significantly reduce the number of relevant field studies and the consumption of materials for lubrication in the «wheel-rail» system.
