An illustrated description is provided of a luxury diesel-electric train built in France for Zagreb Transport Enterprises (ZTP), Yugoslavia. The train includes two motor coaches, two trailer cars and one buffet car. The total seating capacity is 204. The combined power of the two V12 supercharged diesel engines is 2100 hp. The power transmission system is electric, three-phase to dc, with six traction motors. Heating is supplied from the traction alternators; power for air conditioning and other purposes is derived from auxiliary alternators. The vehicle bodies and their equipment are described, both in the power and control compartments and in the passenger areas. The vehicle suspension, primarily rubber, with supplementary helical coil springs for lateral stability, is similar to a current French design; vertical and horizontal shock absorbers are provided, as also are limit stops to control motion on sharp curves. The noise level tests showed a 65 db A average. A dimensional diagram of the train and interior photographs of the cars and the driver's cab are shown.
