Data are compiled and reported for unit bearing pressures for locomotives which are giving satisfactory service. The pressure or load curve and the bending moment diagram are shown for the outside cylinder slidebars of some express passenger engines built for the Central Argentine Railway. British and U.S. design standards for axlebox bearing pressures for passenger, freight, and shunting engines are given. The pressure curve for one revolution of the driving wheel of an engine having two outside cylinders, 19 in. diameter by 26 in. stroke, coupled wheels 6 feet 2.5 in. diameter and a boiler pressure of 225 lb/sq. in.
