Suburban Talgo train design proposal

26 Sep 2014

INNOTRANS: Patentes Talgo has unveiled a proposal for suburban and regional trainsets based on the Talgo concept of short, lightweight cars with independent wheels.

The proposed train has a Bo’2’2’2’Bo wheel arrangement and would be suitable for 1435, 1520 or 1668 mm gauges. A formation just 78 m long would be able to accommodate 190 seated and 320 standing passengers in the urban configuration.

It could be built to accept the four common European power supplies, with a nominal power rating of 2000 kW and a maximum speed of 160 km/h. Tare weight would be 131·5 tonnes.
