NEW SLIDING-PLUG DOORS FOR COACHES

NEUE SCHWENKSCHIEBETUREN FUER REISEZUGWAGEN

A sliding-plug door developed by VEB Waggonbau Bautzen is presently being tested on several coaches. The door is fitted 30 mm in from the outside wall of the coach so as not to foul the vehicle gauge of the coach when open. The author describes how the door opens and closes and the safety mechanism. If the doors encounter an obstacle when closing automatically they are designed to stop and re-open, so that nobody can be trapped behind them.
