Plain wagon bearings, better known as 'brasses', are in operation on many of the world's railways, but they have a number of disadvantages. A new design of plain bearing by Vandervell is described to replace the 'brasses' and offers certain advantages. Also an advanced plain cylindrical bearing is described, designed for use on the high speed trains of the future.
