Electrical heating systems for railway switches

Snow or ice in the switch points often causes loss of switch function, which in turn results in disrupted train services and very large costs for the society. There are several different methods to keep track switches clear of snow and ice, ranging from manual sweeping and ice hacking to different systems for melting snow and ice.
