The article deals with the issue of friction reduction. Application of lubrication to decrease the intensity of wear in the wheel-rail system is widely-spread in rail transport. However, the lubricants used in this technology, even those which are made according to contemporary significant requirements relating to the environment, cause irreparable harm to the nature. The article suggests the application of lubrication based on reducing the temperature in the contact area by applying a refrigerant.
