The test cars described are self-propelled when overhead catenary power is available, but can operate over non-electrified lines when drawn by a diesel locomotive or included in a train. Track measurements made by the cars are processed to provide analog traces or printouts from digital magnetic tape. Equipped with computers and electronic measuring devices, the test cars offer opportunity for on-site analysis of track conditions. Measuring system and data processing are described.
