  • Abstract:
    This memorandum summarizes the development and use of the Draft Buff Indicator, a prototype system for sensing, recording, and displaying freight train "slack action" or inter-car movement. The prototype, developed by the Transportation Systems Center as part of the International Government Industry Research Program on Track Train Dynamics, has been use-tested by four major railroads. This memorandum describes the basic design of the system, the railroads' experiences with it, and the prognosis for future use. A more detailed description of the system may be found in Report No. DOT/ORD-77-53 entitled "Development of a System to Display and Record Slack Action in Freight Trains."
