Keywords:  hoof, triangular, underside, pad, wedge
A reptile with edible legs. The first mention of frogs in profane literature is in Homer's narrative of the war between them and the mice. Skeptical persons have doubted Homer's authorship of the work, but the learned, ingenious and industrious Dr. Schliemann has set the question forever at rest by uncovering the bones of the slain frogs. One of the forms of moral suasion by which Pharaoh was besought to favor the Israelities was a plague of frogs, but Pharaoh, who liked them _fricasees_, remarked, with truly oriental stoicism, that he could stand it as long as the frogs and the Jews could; so the programme was changed. The frog is a diligent songster, having a good voice but no ear. The libretto of his favorite opera, as written by Aristophanes, is brief, simple and effective -- "brekekex-koax"; the music is apparently by that eminent composer, Richard Wagner. Horses have a frog in each hoof -- a thoughtful provision of nature, enabling them to shine in a hurdle race.
The triangular prominence of the hoof, in the middle of the sole of the foot of the horse, and other animals; the fourchette.
A pad in the central area of a hoof.
A supporting plate having raised ribs that form continuations of the rails, to guide the wheels where one track branches from another or crosses it.
The frog is the part of a turnout where the curved rail for the diverging line crosses the straight rail for the straight ahead move. In Australia (and the UK) it is more usually referred to as the 'crossing'. The frog number simply refers to how sharply the diverging line is diverging. For all practical purposes, you can consider it as the number of inches it takes for the diverging rail (at the frog) to diverge one inch from the straight rail. So a #4 frog takes 4 inches to diverge 1 inch, and is sharper than a #6 frog which takes 6 inches. GAUGE Gauge is the distance between the inside faces of the two rails of a railroad. In the US, most of Europe, the normal or standard gauge is 4'8.5" (1.435 meter). Common smaller gauges in the US are 3' and 2', while in Europe one finds 1.0 meter as well as 0.75 meter. The Indian standard is 5'6" although called Broad Gauge to differentiate from the substantial amounts of 1.0 metre. South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Ghana and Nigeria all use 3'6" called the African standard, or Cape gauge. Other major railways are those of the former USSR using 5'0", China using 4'8.5" and Japan and Taiwan using 3'6".
The point where the track rails actually cross at every switch and rail/rail crossing.
