Goldenpass Express: The gauge changing bogie and the associated gauge changing system in Zweisimmen were successfully tested and presented to the public

PROSE was significantly involved in the development of the prototype for these bogies as well as the track side gauge changing facility. This bogie is a world novelty, as it not only adapts the gauge from standard gauge to metre gauge, but also adapts the height of the vehicle to the platform height (in this case a difference of 180mm). 

 

The gauge changing system was designed in such a way that it does not impair the passage of standard gauge vehicles and metre gauge vehicles, but enables the gauge changing process to be carried out by the gauge changing bogies. This system was designed and calculated entirely by PROSE.
