The efforts made to improve the service and to raise the speed of traffic impose technical advance on the S.N.C.F. concerning, notably, riding stability and the dynamic comfort offered by vehicles in general, and more particularly passenger coaches. Systematic theoretical and experimental research work is being effected on this subject, and diverse solutions differing with the bogie design or the characteristics of the suspension components are being tried out. One of these consists in fitting, to the secondary suspension, pneumatic springs, identical with those employed successfully by the Japanese Railways.
