Two different types of rail are being used on this project, Ri 60 and 35G from Sheffield Supertram. The main difference between them is the height of the web. To enable them to be welded together, the web of the larger Ri 60 is hydraulically squashed so that it will accept a 35G mould.
1. The Ri 60 rail is on the left.
2. The hydraulic press is in place.
3. The foot and the web of the rail is heated from both sides.
