Nonlinear dynamical behaviors of a train suspension system with impacts are investigated. The suspension system is modelled through an impact model with possible stick between a bolster and two wedges. Based on the mapping structures, periodic motions of such a system are described. To understand the global dynamical behaviors of the train suspension system, system parameter maps are developed. Numerical simulations for periodic and chaotic motions are performed from the parameter maps.
