Track Gauge
In rail transport , TRACK GAUGE is the spacing of the rails on a railway track and is measured between the inner faces of the load-bearing rails. All vehicles on a rail network must have running gear that is compatible with the track gauge, and in the earliest days of railways the selection of a proposed railway's gauge was a key issue. As the dominant parameter determining interoperability, it is still frequently used as a descriptor of a route or network. There is a distinction between the nominal gauge and actual gauge at some locality, due to divergence of track components from the nominal. Railway engineers use a device, like a caliper , to measure the actual gauge, and this device is also referred to as a track gauge. The terms _structure gauge _ and _loading gauge _ have little connection with track gauge. They are both widely used, but imprecise, terms

Railway Electrification System
A RAILWAY ELECTRIFICATION SYSTEM supplies electric power to railway trains and trams without an on-board prime mover or local fuel supply. Electric railways use electric locomotives to haul passengers or freight in separate cars or electric multiple units , passenger cars with their own motors. Electricity is typically generated in large and relatively efficient generating stations, transmitted to the railway network and distributed to the trains. Some electric railways have their own dedicated generating stations and transmission lines but most purchase power from an electric utility . The railway usually provides its own distribution lines, switches and transformers . Power is supplied to moving trains with a (nearly) continuous conductor running along the track that usually takes one of two forms: overhead line , suspended from poles or towers along the track or from structure or tunnel ceilings; third rail mounted at track level and contacted by a sliding "pickup shoe"

50 Hz
The UTILITY FREQUENCY, (POWER) LINE FREQUENCY ( American English ) or MAINS FREQUENCY ( British English ) is the nominal frequency of the oscillations of alternating current (AC) in an electric power grid transmitted from a power station to the end-user . In large parts of the world this is 50 Hz , although in the Americas and parts of Asia it is typically 60 Hz. Current usage by country or region is given in the list of mains power around the world . During the development of commercial electric power systems in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, many different frequencies (and voltages) had been used. Large investment in equipment at one frequency made standardization a slow process. However, as of the turn of the 21st century, places that now use the 50 Hz frequency tend to use 220–240 V , and those that now use 60 Hz tend to use 100–127 V
