Military Dictionary and Gazetteer
In gunnery, by track is understood the distance between the furrows formed by the wheels of artillery carriages in the ground. It is important that the track should be the same for all carriages likely to travel the same road, in order that the wheels of one carriage may follow in the furrows formed by those of its predecessor, and thereby prevent a loss of tractile force. The track of artillery carriages is 5 feet, and the extreme length of the axle-tree is 61⁄2 feet for field-, and 63⁄4 feet for siege-carriages.
A line, route, course or path on which something moves.
The track was easy to navigate for the electric train.Submitted by MaryC on January 8, 2020
