A method and a measuring range of displacements and accelerations, vertical and transversal of moving parts of railway turnouts are presented in this paper. Vertical vibrations have destructive influence for railway-track construction. Transversal vibrations are in exact relation with safety of railway traffic. These vibrations are getting up from excitations of moving track vehicles.

The measurements have been made in special moving turnout points. Two presently used turnouts having the same turning radius were investigated. One of them is new generation turnout, but the second one has classical construction.

In finally conclusion is drawing the relation between velocity of excitation and the values of vibration parameters. Moreover explain why to use more complicated construction in turnouts of new generation.
