This article presents the materials related to the development of a forward-looking design of the device intended to increase the reliability of running gears of locomotives in overcoming the curved segments of track due to the transverse arrangement of wheelsets. The substantiation is provided for the goals and objectives of the study. Based on the analysis of numerous domestic and foreign sources of literature and patents devoted to this issue, the said design of the device has been developed to the level of an invention. The calculation methodologies have been proposed, and the physical and mathematical models have been developed to substantiate the major design parameters of such a device. The study results are recommended to research, industrial, and operational entities of both domestic and foreign railway transport for the purpose of their further study and possible practical implementation.
