Accommodation, or dummy bogies as they are sometimes known, support a vehicle at a suitable height for maintenance to take place underneath when the working bogie has been removed.
They are ideal for use in the production of new vehicles or in depots where the base of existing stock requires attention.
Accommodation bogies can be tailored to the needs of your facility and are suitable for internal or external use and storage. We can adapt them to run on straight or curved track profiles and they will adjust to angular misalignment between the bogie and the underside of the vehicle, so the carriage can travel up and down traverser ramps.
We use large diameter steel wheels with a standard British profile for ease of movement and stability. They are complemented by heavy duty roller bearing assemblies, mounted to the underside of the bogie frame. The frame itself is fitted with two circular towers that connect with the vehicle’s airbag points and a central pocket to pick up the spigot.
