This paper deals with the development of an elastomeric mounting for installation between the roller bearing adapters and truck side frames of railroad cars. This mounting will provide for a controlled lateral motion between the adapter and side frame of a nominal +/- 5/16 in. Test installations and the results of these preliminary tests are discussed and the advantages of a roller bearing adapter mounting are pointed out. Most of the purported advantages are supported with test results while others are predicted as a result of the test data.
