Abstract. Analysis of the issues of stability and dynamics of wheeled vehicles moving along a special overpass indicates an extremely limited information resource. The vast majority of works are devoted to issues of vertical dynamics, but the issue of transverse dynamics and transverse force interaction of the guide module with the overpass is insufficiently covered. Also, the question of the use of one or another model of tire retraction when modeling the movement of an elastic wheel and practical recommendations for choosing the size of the bearing and guide wheels depending on the nature and magnitude of the dynamic loads providing the necessary level of safety and comfort remain little covered. Further research will be devoted to resolving these issues.
