The steady state response for model of a six-axle locomotive running on a sinusoidally irregular track has been investigated. In this paper the generalized method of complex algebra is used to obtain the steady state response of the vehicle components to sinusoidal lateral track irregularities with varying frequencies. Two mathematical models for the six-axle locomotive have been set up. A full model for the stationary vehicle, in which slip between wheels and rails and corresponding creep forces are assumed negligible, and a full model for the moving vehicle, in which creep forces and wheel trend profiles are considered.
