Z 7001 TESTS PAVE THE WAY FOR ELECTRIC TGVS

For the Paris South East high-speed line, electric trainsets are being designed by French National Railways. A prototype has been used to test various mechanical and electrical elements. The main purpose was to try a new power truck design. This truck involves body-mounted motors and linear motor railhead brakes. With motors body mounted, the reduction in truck weight more than compensates for the brake. In addition to a description of the truck and brake, the traction system of the experimental rail car is also described.
