ELH1 – The compact single-axle bogie

The ELH1-M single-axle bogie is a special construction for use in a track machines under particularly unfavourable clearance gauge conditions in metro networks. It replaces conventional steering axles. The vehicle frame is supported on the single-axle bogie via a standardised double link suspension. All pneumatic and mechanical brake components are located in the single-axle bogie itself. This makes the unit very compact and requires very little space, especially in the transverse direction of the vehicle.
