RESULTS OF TESTS FOR SMOOTH RUNNING ON TYPE MD 36 AND TYPE LD 70 BOGIES

LAUFTECHNISCHE ERGEBNISSE MIT DREHGESTELLEN DER BAUART MD 36 UND LD 70

High-speed test runs up to 250 km/h show that the greatest problem is to ensure smooth running. The traditional wheel profile is subject to rapid wear, and needs grinding after 20,000 to 30,000 km. Bogies with stabilizing devices and worn profiles, of the types DB II or ORE S 1002 may be operated at a speed of 250 km/h. Some coaches in service, with a DB II profile, can cover up to 450,000 km between grindings.
