The article concerns the developed methodology for assessing the technical condition of a tramway track. Thanks to the data collected from multiple tram journeys equipped with an on-board vibration recording system, it was possible to create profiles of crossings through track sections in different technical condition. In order to identify the track condition, an algorithm based on the gray-scale modeling was proposed, and a similarity comparison between the obtained track profiles. A new measure of similarity has been proposed that has not been used so far in gray-scale modeling. The obtained results confirm the applicability of the proposed methodology
