Difference Between Train and Tram Rails
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A railroad or railway is a track made of two parallel steel bars, called rails, which support and guide vehicles with flanged iron wheels, such as trains and trams. Although light rail is bridging the gap between those two modes of transport, the two are still separated by fundamental design differences in track and wheel design. Because the wheels of a rail vehicle are mounted on a solid axle, they turn at the same speed. The wheel has a slightly tapered rim, bounded by a flange on the inside.
