ABSTRACT: In May 1973, Boeing Vertol Company was awarded a contract to build Light Rail Vehicles to a specification sponsored by Department of Transportation's Mass Transportation Administration, and identified a Standard Light Rail Vehicle (SLRV). Engineering testing on the SLRV was conducted by Boeing Vertol Company in accordance with the General Vehicle Test Plan GSP-064 at the Transportation Test Center, Pueblo, Colorado. The tests were conducted in conjunction with the Qualification Testing of three SLRV Production Pilot Cars (SF-0002, SF-0003, and MB-0002) . This report presents the results of the series of tests conducted in accordance with GSP-064. Volume I contains a description of the SLRV Test Program and the vehicle, and a summary of the test results; Volume II, Performance and Power Consumption Test Data; Volume III, Ride Quality, Noise, and Radio Frequency Interference Test Data; and Volume IV, a log of all tests collated by test objective and test vehicle.
