Gauge-changing bogie development with groundwork designed by PROSE awarded Alstom Innovation Award

At PROSE we are proud to have laid the foundation stone of the gauge-changing bogie technology which has now been awarded with the Alstom Innovation Award


Montreux-Berner Oberland-Bahn (MOB) had entrusted PROSE with the design of gauge-changing trailing bogies. The development engineers used MOB’s construction and operating principle, which makes it possible to change the gauge of the bogies by letting them run over a fixed axle-gauge changeover facility at low speed, as a basis for the design of the bogies. The change from meter gauge to standard gauge and vice versa is facilitated by two half frames, which can be slid 435 mm sideways relative to each other and which are equipped with independent wheels. This construction principle was to be realised concretely. 


You can learn more about the Gauge-changing bogie - EV09 project on the project factsheet, as well as through our PROSE’s presentation at the Schienenfahrzeugtagung 2011 in Graz.
