This document is an advertisement for the Gloucester cast steel freight truck which has a "Metalastik" rubber suspension. The "Metalastik" springs consist of bonded rubber springs of chevron shape which give angular and vertical flexibility. Derailment and wheel wear is minimised by the transverse angling of the side frames. The use of the simple suspension eliminates the need for bolster springs, guides and lubricating surfaces.
