Re: UT inspection in railway axles
Was it just by chance that this topic raised while NDT.net prepared for the August issue a focus on this topic?!
Because in Germany happened an incidence we prepared information. A defective axle caused one of the high-speed trains to derail in July at Cologne's main station.
For this incidence we will soon open a new discussion topic in this forum.

If you use the keyword search "Train axle" you will find 37 articles of this subject
http://www.ndt.net/search/docs.php3?KeywordID=2105

More broad just "railway" you will find 151 articles
http://www.ndt.net/search/docs.php3?KeywordID=312
