GTW articulated railcar

Over the past few years easier access to railway networks by carriers, and the decentralisation of procurement to the regions, have given rise to the emergence of numerous light railcars in the market. One of the most successful vehicles in this area is the GTW articulated railcar, having sold well over 500 units to date.

The GTW articulated railcar is based on a modular vehicle concept to optimally meet the various requirements in terms of track gauge, structural clearance and transport capacity. Thanks to its modular design, the GTW articulated railcar available in electric versions for all common voltages as well as in diesel-electric versions. Its typical feature is its Power Module which is located in the centre of the vehicle and which houses the entire power plant. The Power Module is designed with a passageway for passengers. For maintenance purposes, all systems and components are accessible from the outside. This design virtually eliminates the need for any capital investment in the workshop and allows maintenance and repair times to be minimised. The two-end carriages of the GTW 2/6 are made of extruded aluminium sections and are semi-mounted on the Power Module. Thanks to the systematic separation of the Power Module and the end carriages, no noise or vibrations are transmitted to the passenger compartments. Since the two-end carriages do not contain any heavy drive components, they can be of light-weight design so that almost the entire available clearance gauge can be used for designing the passenger compartments. The low-floor portion, matched to platform levels, is higher than 65%. Based on a defined standard, the basic equipment can be customised individually. The length and width of the body can be adjusted to suit the available vehicle clearance gauge.

In addition to the basic articulated railcar variant - the GTW 2/6, other sizes are also possible:
