PILOT LIGHT-ALLOY BODYSHELL PROVES APT TRAILER CAR DESIGN

In advance of three prototype trains, a complete trailer bodyshell has been constructed, using aluminum alloy extrusions for longitudinal body members. Static load tests produced predicted stress and deflection readings; resonance tests will be carried out before the 36 trailer cars are built. At this stage tooling for series production of this structure is being developed.
