ADDITIONAL S.N.C.F. ELECTRIC MOTOR COACHES OF THE "Z2" TYPE

The general arrangement of the sets is shown diagrammatically. The design is a two-car unit, permanently coupled in normal service. The two cars are connected by an inter-communication arrangement. The vehicle bodies are constructed of corrosion resistant steel and are of two types, one for the motor coach and one for the trailer. The power bogie carries two fully suspended motors. Torque is transmitted to the axle by a universal joint and hollow shaft system. The gears are of the helical type so as to reduce gear noise. The axle boxes are connected to the bogie frame by links fitted with rubber bushes.
