you all definitely seen it near every station. there is a wooden block placed between plateform and the track . i want to know why?
i think that wooden block is used as step for the trackman and other track supervisors who are checking tracks and standing rakes if maintenance is required or not.
Wodden blocks used in for loop lines i. E. Platform line so as due to train movement track can be slewd liitle much and it can occur infringement with faltform which can harm train movement with platform so to avoid this wooden block is used to maintain schedule of dimension of railways. Thanks
It’s technically required as detailed above by the Ankush
