ROLLER BEARINGS FREIGHT CAR SERVICE
The use of roller bearings on freight cars is justified on the basis of reduced maintenance and inspection time and derailment expense. The fitting of roller bearings to cars already in service is discussed. The coasting characteristics of roller bearing cars in hump yards and the rolling resistance of these cars in train starting are compared to plain-bearing cars.
