Un triage ou une gare de triage (en Belgique : gare de formation) est une gare ferroviaire spécialisée
où les wagons de marchandises isolés de leur rame initiale sont triés pour être incorporés
dans de nouveaux trains de marchandises (fret).
A classification yard or marshalling yard (including hump yards) is a railroad yard found at some freight train stations, used to separate railroad cars on to one of several tracks.
First the cars are taken to a track, sometimes called a lead or a drill. From there the cars are sent through a series of switches called a ladder onto the classification tracks. Larger yards tend to put the lead on an artificially built hill called a hump to use the force of gravity to propel the cars through the ladder.
