Summary

By comparison with UIC Leaflet 505-1 and 505-4 , this leaflet defines the rules for gauges GA, GB, GC, GB1 and GB2 which are larger in the upper part and gauge GI3 which is larger in the lower part.

For each gauge this leaflet enables:

  • maximum construction gauges for rolling stock to be determined,
  • the examination of the structure gauges and track centre distances which must be achieved and maintained.
