Checkrail Unit

The unit consists of a length of rail (called the checkrail) with a flared bevel machined on each end, hardened on the checking face, bolted through chocks to a closure rail (called the carrier) to attain a flangeway clearance. The centre of the checkrail is usually opposite the theoretical point of the crossing.
