joint profiles, rail groove profile
Explanation:
[rail or track] joint profiles, rail groove profile

I suspect these terms refer to (A) the end-to-end joints between adjacent rail/track (plain or at a switch) and (B) the contour of the rail groove seen in section.

The following might at least get you a step closer.
