EN: Abstract. The article reveals the quantitative changes in the intensity of failure accumulations in areas with gradual introduction of high axial loads. To obtain the actual values, the authors received threedimensional array of intensity of rail failure flow. According to the results of the research, it was discovered that the main cause of failure of the rails are the defects in the main contact-fatigue origin. The main factor that impacts the intensity of the rail failure flow is the number of transmitted tonnage. The size of the axial load and curvature of the line pours weight on this process. The proposed rail failure model is a model that can be used to optimize the track maintenance system. The authors conducted a study on the identification of quantitative changes in the intensity of accumulation of track failures in areas with high axial loads and evaluated their influence on the planning of repair and road works. On the basis of the obtained results it is possible to estimate the effect of the axial load on the intensity of changes in the state of the flow rail failure flows.
