Abstract: On fast moving world, the interest is being increased for high-speed trains. It provides a sustainable and effective mode of travelling. Till date India was special among the developing nations for not having a high-speed rail corridor. However, by introducing Mumbai–Ahmedabad high-speed rail corridor, it opens up research directed towards efficient design of the supporting structures. In India, construction and upgradation of railways on its top which attracts the researchers for advance research in the same field. Here an attempt is made to understand the railway track formulation and bridging aspect for high speed rail model as per European standards to assess the influence or impact of rail axle load on bridge behavior. Under this scope, a hypothetical case study of “H-Shaped Cable Stayed Bridge” is taken with Rheda 2000 non-ballasted track, vibrating and non-vibrating ballasted track. The analysis is performed by two approaches; first is the track characterized by its finite element model and second is by introducing track through its equivalent weight. The ballast-less track is already a candid approach for rail lines, showing competitiveness against the conventional ballasted track. The reason for the adaptability of the Ballast-less track is its low maintenance and high accessibility of materials. However, on the basis of vibration analysis “Vibrating Ballasted Track” proved decent in terms of performance.
