A committee report considers that the railway vehicle is made up of units which are united by elastic elements. The movements of the various units are considered, and formulae to represent such phenomenon as single mass oscillation, nonlinear vibrations, self-sustained movement, are included. The problem of "hunting" is defined, factors discussed, and the part that the track plays in the phenomenon is discussed.
