A survey is given of the results of noise measurement of rail vehicles of all kinds.

Up to date findings are stated on the origin of the rail traffic noise, the exterior noise, its maximum level, the energy equivalent of the working sound level, the noise of the environment, the inside noise, the excitation of body noise through the rail vehicles and the possibilities of lessening the rail traffic noise are dealt with in detail.
