Center Truck Performance on Low-Flow Light Rail Vehicles
Center Truck Performance on Low-Flow Light Rail Vehicles
Report Number: R-114
This report should be of interest to engineers, manufactures, maintainers, and other interested in low-floor light rail vehicle (LFLRV) center truck performance issues and their potential solutions for center trucks with unpowered, independently rotating wheels.  It describes performance issues observed in the operations of LFLRV center trucks (focusing on 70-percent low-floor vehicles), such as excessive wheel wear and noise and occassional derailments, and provides guidance on how to minimize or avoid these issues.
