A Southern Pacific road test in 1973 confirmed the various Train Action Models; 1974 tests at the Pueblo Transportation Test Center confirmed the Lateral Stability Models; L&N tests confirmed Vertical Train Stability Models. This manual explains what occured during these tests and provides a description of the data obtained.
