TRACK/TRAIN DYNAMICS: A PROGRESS REPORT
The Federal Railroad Administration, the Railway Progress Institute, the Association of American Railroads, a few RPI members and a handful of railroads are participating in a multi-phase study of the interaction of track and train. The program, which is divided into three phases, is expected to take ten years to complete. In Phase I, a two-year project started in mid-July 1972, the emphasis is on train handling and train makeup and their effects on the wheel-rail relationship. Phase II, dealing with specifications for track, rolling stock and components, will follow and will last three years. The final five-year phase will deal with employment of advanced technology to achieve the ultimate goal of safer, more reliable rail transportation.
