PROGRESS IN RAILWAY MECHANICAL ENGINEERING (1976-1977 REPORT OF SURVEY COMMITTEE) CARS AND EQUIPMENT
This survey of the annual ASME report covers some of the major developments in rail freight and passenger equipment made public in the last calender year. It covers developments worldwide. In the freight area the main developments are aimed at transporting bulk commodities with some thought being given to multipurpose concepts.
