Track Inspection

how to check rail alignment ?

This is an aspect that is checked often.
This tool is mounted on the front of 'Hi-Rail' equipment and measures as it rolls along.
When a defect is fount it is noted and marked for the track gangs, so they can fix it.

EDIT 1:
Wolf's link is great. I've bookmarked it. It is full of data.
Special note:
Amusement parks and little recreational RR tracks have to be in gauge also. The tools in the above links are used in these applications also [like the walk-behind type that you push along by hand].
