zoology or mechanical engineering? A Crane and a Rail are two different birds. A Crane Rail in the mechanical sense is a track-like structure specifically for a crane. in some cases Crane Rails ( never Crane Tracks) are imbedded in concrete for heavy container-crane loads. often the structure uses special types of rail set in the pavement as described above. Rail heads are different also from the RR type. Glad you asked that Duplex Track is often used for heavy crane loads- and the flanges are different than for conventional ralroad tracks. also- some gantry cranes derived their power from a third-rail 660VDC structure as were all the Erie-Lackawanna Gantry Cranes, now sadly extinct.
