A slide chair in a railway track at a switch is that portion of the tapered rail segment that guides the train from one track to the switch track. The slide chair moves horizontally to select with which track the train will be aligned. Moved out of the way, the train will proceed straight ahead. With the slide chair moved over to the rail, it will guide the train to the alternate (switch) rail to follow the other track.
