Low Profile Power Bogie Information

The new power bogie was designed for locos and trams that require a lower overall profile to sit below the chassis.

We decided to incorporate the industry standard Bosch 750watt DC motor in order to give 1 hp per bogie. The motor is protected from dust etc from the rails with a steel cover plate with forced air cooling drawing air from the top of the bogie and exhausting it through the sides.

The drive train uses industrial taper lock sprockets and CNC wheels and axles supported by self aligning roller bearings. Coiled spring suspension makes for a smooth ride no matter what the load.

Laser cut components ensure accuracy and alignment and the new disc brake ensures the bogie will stop as easily as it will go.

The disc brake has a 115mm dia disc and a floating cam lever actuated calliper.

We use two of these power bogies under the 7¼” gauge Titan and Geep locos. They are equally at home under a tram or under a project you may have in mind for your own use or under your club loco..

Available in power and unpowered and versions all with or without a fitted disc brake there are options to suit many loco and tram types.

The disc brake can be actuated by air or vacuum if required.
