Y 32 bogies are fitted to "Corail" coaches and passengers appreciate the quality of their suspension. About 4,000 are in service on coaches suitable for a maximum speed of 160 km/hr and they are all identical. When provided with electromagnetic brake shoes and side-motion dampers these bogies can be fitted to coaches designed for 200 km/hr operation. The article reports on the comfort factors recorded when this modified bogie was tested between Facture and Morcenx in the Landes at 250 km/hr. They confirm the quality of the vertical longitudinal and transversal stability of this bogie and the fact that it performs well when running at 250 km/hr.
