The paper presents an analysis of linear models track response under longitudinal loads due to braking and accelerating of the train as well as constant traction forces. Longitudinal forces on the wheel-rail contacts are uniformly distributed on the whole length of train. Analysis is carried out under assumption that – in short time – train speed does not change significantly. Therefore stationary response of rail track is considered. The problem of critical speed is presented. Effect of vertical imperfections on the longitudinal rail displacement is considered under assumption that longitudinal forces varying in time are changed proportionally to the vertical forces. These forces are proportional to the amplitude of vertical imperfections. This analysis should be recognised as the main novelty of the paper. In the summary, certain practical conclusions are formulated as well as the further investigations are pointed out.
