In this paper we use Fuzzy Set Theory to solve one of the essential problems in Railway Engineering: estimate the strength of rolling stock. As known, the strength of, any, rolling stock depends upon several factors that cannot determine them accurately. Therefore, we can consider them as fuzzy factors. The strength of any rolling stock can be changed depending on its operating conditions and the intensive of operation, that can consider as fuzzy factors too. A new proposal method developed depending on Fuzzy Set Theory to estimate the strength of mobile equipment or to compare between several rolling stocks for a specific job by utilizing the abilities of SolidWorks and ANSYS with special Fuzzy logic programs in MATLAB
