Positive identification of "secondary conditioning" by electron microscope and further investigations relating to the elimination of oily conditions round the oxide particles formed, together with a study of the effects of applying fluids to the rail surface, offer increasing practicalities to overcoming wheel-slip induced by rail surface conditions. Trials with esters ejected by commercially-manufactured rail mounted applicators showed favourable results and this system is considered the most practical after consideration of other techniques which have shown promise under laboratory conditions.
