From a paper read to the Society, June 16th 1905.

Describes an aspect of pendulum physics not really applicable to horology, but to the testing of locomotive vehicles, "recording the magnitude of the starting and stopping efforts, and generally experimentally determining what may be appropriately termed the 'ballistics of traction'".

Various diagrams of the 1889 and the 1904 models of this machinery.
