An examination of the resistance of modern British Railways vehicles is made. This study is subdivided into resistances caused by track irregularities, bearing friction, wheel rolling resistance, total rolling resistance, rail joint resistance, parasitic motion resistance, sinusoidal motion, wheel contact, flange to rail clearance, suspension oscillation resistance, and damping characteristics. Dynamometer readings were taken from field tests.
