A bogie featuring excellent running properties is the outcome of the consistent development design and experimental work conducted by GANZ-MAVAG. The new bogie is suitable for any track gauge and for any kind of drive or brake system. It can be used as leading or trailing bogie and contains no parts subject to wear. For this reason, it requires minimum maintenance and retains its good running properties throughout its entire life. According to the test results and their general trend, the present design may also serve as a basic concept for a bogie for 160 km/h or even higher speeds.
