Developing a Clearance Diagram for Passenger Equipment
This recommended practice provides a guide for passenger railroads to determine their particular equipment clearance requirements and develop a clearance diagram sufficiently specific to allow equipment designers to develop designs that will conform to those requirements. It has two specific limitations:
- It is not intended to lead to the development of a universal passenger equipment diagram, because such a diagram would be too restrictive in one way or another to most passenger railroads.
- It is based on conventional types of trucks and does not consider tilt suspension systems. If an unconventional truck design or a tilt suspension is employed, these procedures may have to be modified to suit the particular vehicles.
