Computational modelling and simulations are nowadays widely used for design of railway vehicles, analysing and assessment of their dynamic properties and also for detection and prediction of the mechanism of deterioration and sources of damages. Therefore it is necessary to develop the adequate virtual model of an analysed railway vehicle as well as a track. For these purposes many simulations software packages are developed. In these computational programs a railway vehicle is modelled as a mechanical system usually consists of many bodies called a multibody system. In this paper the process of computational modelling of a freight wagon multibody system is outlined. Moreover, there are presented also results of dynamic simulation of a freight wagon running on a real track section. The analysed intermodal freight wagon was equipped with Y25 bogie. The freight wagon model, simulation analyses and ride properties evaluation were performed by means of a commercial simulation program.
