Definitions for "TURNOUT"
Keywords:  newel, diverging, rail, frog, movable
From "Railway Track and Maintenance: A Manual of Maintenance-of-Way and Structures" by E.E.R. Tratman, McGraw-Hill Book Company, Inc., 1926, p. 342 [formerly published under the title of "Railway Track and Track Work"], quoted here without permission: Turnouts -- Where a train is to be diverted from one track to another, a turnout is installed, which is essentially a curve connecting two parallel or diverging tracks. This curve, however, is composed of three principal parts: (1) a switch, consisting of two movable rails to direct the train onto one track or the other, as desired; (2) a frog to allow the wheel flanges to pass the intersection of the rails; and (3) rails, known as lead rails, connecting the frog with the switch rails.
Generally regarded as the correct nomenclature for a track switch--a device configured with movable rails which allow a train to enter an alternate route.
A track structure used to divert cars and locomotives from one track to another.
