The rail wheelset dynamics has skeleton importance to avoid the slip and slide due to insufficient adhesion level depending on creep forces. Proper study and control upon lateral and yaw motion owing to creep forces may reduce the problem at some extent. In this paper, this dynamics of wheelset with its possible degree of freedom has been discussed and limited to lateral and yaw analysis. These analyses have been computed and simulated by simulink to observe their behavior. The disturbances of these dynamical parameters are estimated using Kalman filter. The correlation of actual and estimated curves has been assessed to invent novel idea.
