British Patent No. 717,965 for the new design of a radial-axle bogie which will permit railway vehicles to negotiate sharp curves at higher speeds with safety, than is possible with bogies having a rigid wheel-base has been granted. The elevation and plan of the six-wheel bogie are shown to describe the design and the arrangement of pivots. The links and pivots are so proportioned that, when the vehicle is negotiating a curve, the axes of the leading and trailing axles intersect at the center of the curve.
