The originality of the locomotives lies in the way in which these function. The object of the design of the Bo Bo Bo locomotive was to produce a locomotive which would behave like a Bo Bo; the central bogie was to exert no transverse reaction on the outer bogies and the vertical reactions, due for instance to track twist, were to be minimal. Thus the only functions of the central bogie were the contribution of tractive effort and the support of the locomotive body at the center. This end would seem to have been attained by the arrangement adopted for the body suspension systems of the three bogies. The three bogies are identical up to the level of the body suspension and are interchangeable. They are of conventional design.
