During the operation, the upper railway track structure constantly tends to age, which includes the increasing number of failures. This process is controlled by the track maintenance system, which provides for the current maintenance of the track in a certain railway section. As part of the current maintenance of the track, in particular, works are performed to eliminate defective elements of the upper railway track structure, which appeared during functioning of the track structure. The dependence of the operational cargo turnover on the amount of transported cargoes has been analyzed. It is directly related to the issues of organization of maintenance of the railway track structure taking into account the current track operation conditions. Regression analysis of the reported data allowed establishing a mathematical model of the dependence of the value of operational cargo turnover on the value of the transported cargo. The service life of rails (rail bars) in the track section has been established to be related to the indicator separate rail failure during the period of operation of the upper railway track structure by defects. The safety level of rails (rail bars) can be determined based on the value of this indicator.
