Locomotive BB 432

Locomotive BB 432

Locomotive BB 432 was the first CFD locomotive with an asynchronous gearbox to adopt bogies without connecting rods.

A design that limits the effects of bogie repositioning

The power train consists of two drive units each equipped with a hydraulic coupler and an Asynchro gearbox. On each side of the output shaft of the gearbox there is a freewheel which drives a reversing axle located on the axle via a cardan shaft.
