MF 77 ROLLING STOCK: A NEW GENERATION OF "STEEL-WHEEL" TRAINSETS

LE MATERIEL MF 77: NOUVELLE GENERATION DES RAMES "SUR FER" DE LA RATP

The construction programme begun in 1975 by the Paris Transport Authority (RATP), covers about a thousand coaches of the new generation MF type (materiel fer = steel-wheel trainsets as opposed to rubber-tired trainsets). This rolling stock, which is designed to be attractive (comfort, heating, sound-proofing), has been adapted to meet the many operating requirements (running control, automatic driving). The description of the technical specifications and especially the chopper or KESAR "traction-braking" equipment (sequential electronic supply-current switching and regenerative braking), is illustrated by numerous tables.
