Talking about railway tracks. The words I am not sure about are "placa" ¿¿slabs?? and "taco" ¿¿blocking/blocks??".

English translation:broad guage track (guage=1.445m) with UIC-54 rails mounted on blocks every metre
Explanation:
My referenced indicated "plate" as being the closest for "placa" and "blocks" for "taco". Other expressions were "board" and "wadding/spike" respectively.
