British Railways adopted the Schlieren type of cylindrical axleguides with their B4 and B5 bogies, now used in large numbers under coaches running extensively at 100 mile/h. The use of friction dampers is described to reduce bogie pitching oscillations at speeds above 75 mph. The design of the integral friction damper for the primary suspension of high speed, Russian coaches is illustrated and described. The clouth roll spring used on Hamburg Underground and the German Railway interurban coaches is also described. Test results for clouth springs on a British Railways experimental bogie are reported.
