The use of a hydro-pneumatic suspension concept has enabled Symington Wayne to consider producing a six-wheel truck and also to lower the cost and reduce the maintenance problems that are associated with conventional six-wheel trucks. One of the advantages of this system is that it will permit a reduction in the size and the weight of a six-wheel truck. A big advantage is that the height of the truck can be kept down. Another advantage is that all the wheels and axles can be dropped by merely taking the journal box retainers from each position.
