Methods of transmission electron microscopy are used for layer-by-layer analysis of rails of the highest quality grade. Quantitative parameters of structure gradients, phase composition, and dislocation substructures formed by various mechanisms of γ-α transformation are determined. Sources of long-range stress fields are revealed. It is determined that possible places of microcrack origin in the steel are interfaces cementite particles - matrix.
