In connection with bogie design research and development has led to the establishment of ten particular design features which cover primary and secondary spring deflection; primary damping; secondary spring disposition and damping; swing-link design and suspension; bolster anchorage by traction bars; bogie frame stiffness; rotational damping; secondary spring anchorage, and check stop clearances. It has been clearly established by investigation and testing that the inclusion of the recommendations on these ten points into a new bogie design will give a consistently good ride, which is relatively insensitive to tyre wear and to normal track irregularities.
