LIGHT SUBURBAN UNITS

UNIDADES LIGERAS PARA CERCANIAS

The author first sets out the ideal characteristics which ought to be manifested by the RENFE's suburban rolling stock in order to fulfill the special requirements of this traffic, and goes on to analyse the results of a computer-simulated study of the running of two theoretical units, one in a light alloy and the other in steel, comparing these with the 440-type unit in service on the RENFE. The study yields characteristic basic data currently being examined by the RENFE and a group of Spanish railway rolling stock manufacturers.
