When a train runs through a turnout very high later al forces or high impact forces between the wheels and the switch blade or the frog may occur. This study examines the dynamic behavior of a train when it runs through a turnout. Traction does not only change the dynamic behavior of the wheelset on which it is applied but the dynamics of the whole train. Lateral forces in the coupler cause higher lateral wheel-rail.
