To design the optimal sleeper spacing of the track and reduce the vertical vibration of the rail, the influence of the sleeper spacing on the rail vibration is analysed in the vehicle-track vertical coupling model. By comparing the effects of vehicle speed and load on the vibration response of rails under different sleeper spacings, the importance of vehicle system is pointed out. According to the power spectrum density of the vertical rail displacement, the optimal sleeper spacing under the specific line is proposed, and verified via the vibration decay rate. The results show that the sleeper spacing directly affects the first-order Pinned-pinned vibration of the rail, and the effects of the speed and the load on the vibration response are different. In the low-speed section, the impact of the sleeper spacing on the vibration response is smaller, and the larger spacing can be appropriately selected to reduce the number of sleeper to save costs. However, in the high-speed section, the impact is larger, and the speed and the load should be comprehensively considered to select the optimal sleeper spacing.
