Y27 Ls

The bogie Y27 is a variant of the standard railway wagon bogie Y25. Large numbers of this bogie are being used by the railway companies.


The bogie is particularly characterised by a simple construction and is very reliable in operation.

In contrast to the Y25 bogie, no buffer beam is used, so that the bogie has a smaller construction length. The wheelsets can be braked on one side only, however.


To allow the bogie to be used at a maximum speed of 100 km/h permitted in terms of braking in the loaded condition, composite brake shoe soles have to be employed.


Manufacturing at ELH is carried out based on our own set of drawings.
