Paper describes studies on the processes and the causes of the rail creepage. Measured the rail creepage under traffics in relation to the kind of cars and the temperature of the rails, and found that the rail creepage occurred distinctly only under bogie cars, the sum of the rail creepages gradually increased when the temperature of the rail was varying. Concluded that the rail creeps by the movement of the deflection of the rail under wheels and by the elongation or the contraction of the rail, which is caused generally by the passage of the traffic as a result of releasement of the pressure or the tension in the rail.
