A COACH BOGIE OF INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION FOR VERY HIGH SPEEDS--THE Y32 - FIAT

Cooperation between French National Railways and FIAT has produced two passenger car truck designs characterized by the flexibility of the connection between body and truck to give a maximum of dynamic freedom in the transverse and vertical modes while maintaining stability. Traditional center plate and sliding contact parts have been replaced by linkages located at axle level and flexibly anchored. These trucks are to be used on 500 Eurofima coaches after test running showed high quality ride at 250 kph.
