Looks like there are tons of Engineering Data.

Did you see the link for the downloadable PDF version?

Chris, If you are having trouble with a specific issue, I have some good contacts that have standard gauge trackwork.

That was cool, man. I did the PDF thing and printed myself a copy. One thing I'd like to do if it came down to working in a mine is track work. Plus these formulas will be fun to play with just to get the brain working again. I used some of them on my backyard track work. Standard gauge track gang is another job I'm exploring. Thanks for posting that up.
