Abstract

A rail junction assembly (10) for directing first and second rail vehicle wheels (42, 44) of a wheel arrangement (40) is disclosed. The rail junction assembly comprises first and second main rails (12, 14) and first and second switch rails (16, 18). A first flange receiving passage (17) is defined between the first switch rail and the first main rail. A second flange receiving passage (19) is defined between the second switch rail and the second main rail. The first flange receiving passage is configured to receive a flange (48) of the first wheel, and the second flange receiving passage is configured to receive a flange (48) of the second wheel. A wheel control arrangement (30) controls the first wheel on the first main rail when the second flange is received in the second flange receiving passage, and controls the second wheel on with the second main rail when the first flange is received in the first flange receiving passage.
