This article describes various conference papers. In one, the French experience with rubber soleplates is reviewed. An unsuspected fact was a sound-frequency vibration in the neighborhood of 700-800 cycles, with upward and downward accelerations easily exceeding 100 g. The amplitude was about a tenth of a millimeter, which falls well within the elastic movement of the rail permitted by the rubber soleplates. These phenomena made it necessary to find a fixing that would allow slight vertical movement of the rail, but keep the rail firmly in contact with the soleplate throughout. The requirements have been met by adopting the R.N. elastic clip. In another paper, rubber tires in use in France are examined.
