Since the train began to replace bearings made of wood. Replacement of timber bearing pads made of concrete because it is more economical, stable because of the weight and more durable.
The use of concrete pads produce better stability on the railroad track so that it reduces the time and cost of maintenance ballast. In addition, the use of long rails that can not be used on wood bearing, can be done with the use of these concrete pads.
