A description of the vehicle climatic testing station at Vienna Arsenal, with details of the capacity and performance of the testing chambers and a summary of the activities of the testing station during the year 1969 are given. For passenger coaches and refrigerator vans, where the standard test programme, or variations on this, is used, the standard test programmes are described in detail. Details of the vehicles tested are shown and, for various important factors, comparable test results relating to the various vehicles are shown anonymously on graphs. The results given during 1969 show that the thermal qualities of vehicles have improved over the nine years of operations of the station. A summary is given of tests carried out on tractive units, freight wagons and other items.
