The article describes the preliminary results and conclusions of experimental monitoring of the thermal regime of railway track structure performed on the experimental stands (railway track models in 1:1). The purpose of this study was to optimize the structural thickness of the protective layer in the subgrade structure. The first part of the study describes the experimental stand design and methodology for monitoring the heat and humidity variations in the railway track structure. The following parts describe the results of verification of the thermal characteristics of the material incorporated into the model of the railway track and of its subgrade.
