The impact of rail transportation on road vehicles that are placed in flatcars is considered in the article. The features of piggyback transportation and the dynamic forces acting on road vehicles in railway rolling stock are determined. The change dependences of the values of dynamic forces for different masses of road vehicles in the longitudinal and transverse directions are established. It is concluded that road vehicles that are used in regular piggyback transportation will experience significant dynamic loads of structural elements, which requires monitoring of their technical condition. Consequently, the infrastructure of piggyback terminals that load and unload road vehicles onto railway rolling stock should include the availability of automobile service facilities.
