The present invention relates to a load equalizing and vibration damping center bearing assembly for a railway vehicle. The center bearing assembly includes a flat body center plate depending from the car body, a bowl having a downwardly concave curved inner surface supported on the wheel truck, a tiltable insert disposed in the bowl having a flat upper surface mating with the body center plate and a curved lower surface contiguous to the inner surface of the bowl, and a resilient liner interposed between the insert and the bowl which absorbs vehicle vibration and assures constant and uniform bearing support through said bearing assembly between the vehicle body and the associated wheel truck.
