TALGO PENDULAR SYSTEM
• This is a unique and simple system based on the elevation of the
suspension above the Centre of Gravity of the carbodies. This system is
used to reduce the lateral forces that affect passengers when traveling on
• The carbodies act under the effect of natural ( centrifugal ) forces without
any loss of safety and comfort levels, thanks to the steered wheels and the
unique talgo wheelset assembly characteristics...
… carbodies tilt towards the interior of the curves in direct relationship to the
… reducing the values of lateral forces that act upon the passengers...
… thereby enabling a 25% increase in travel
speed when traveling on a curve, provided
that the tracks' resistance characteristics
... reducing the levels of the wheel-rail
interactions allowing to increase speeds in
curves without affecting safety.
• TALGO's RD System, used to change
automatically the distance between the wheels
of the axles, has been successfully used since
1968 in variable-gauge axles of Talgo's trains.
• The TALGO RD System permits the automatic change of the distance between the wheels of the
railway vehicles in order to make possible the running on different gauge tracks.
• The TALGO RD system can be applied to different models of passenger coaches, power heads,
locomotives and freight wagons with full security and reliability, through standard /Spanish and
Russian / standard gauge Railway networks.
• The change is made without human intervention while the train is running at low speed (15 Km/h)
through a special installation fixed on the track in between the tracks of different gauges.
