Why are railroads using composite skirting boards?
Railroads have been experimenting with composite skiding boards since the 1980s.
Now, a new study shows that the boards are more durable than they were a few years ago.
The composite boards are designed to keep skids from sticking together in rail cars and allow for faster travel, according to the study.
The study was done by the National Research Council’s Transportation Research Board.
It looked at composite skidding boards on the tracks in 20 U.S. railroads and found that they can keep skidding rails apart and help keep cars moving more quickly, the AP reported.
The study found that the board also protects against the effects of slippage and other forces that can damage the rails.
The researchers also found that these boards do not wear out or crack as fast as other skidding devices, and that the durability of the boards makes them useful for railroads.
They recommend that the federal government buy these boards to prevent the use of other materials in railcars.
The AP found that some railroads are using the boards in the construction of tracks and tunnels, and they are expected to become a standard component of railroad tracks by 2040.
The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) is also considering the use the boards for track maintenance and upgrading.
