The development of the application and technique of welding particularly as applied to railways, locomotives, rolling stock, and wagons is traced. An early development was the application of welding to a carriage underframe the result being so satisfactory that it led to the general introduction of this method of construction. The result was a lighter underframe and more rigid construction which required less camber. The next development was the application of welding to wagon underframes. The need was cited for paying attention to design as visualized from the point of view of welding to obtain the best results from fabricating of various materials which had contributed so much to the solving of some of the problems in regard to the weight of rolling stock.
