Diesel electric multiple-units with bogies

CFD railcars with bogies are vehicles designed to maximise passenger transport with limited axle weight. These vehicles combine comfort and simplicity.By combining the lightness of its body, a high-performance diesel-electric power train and its reduced axle load, the CFD bogie railcar range offers new prospects for the operation of small or secondary lines.

Configurations

Available in versions from 1 to 5 bodies, the CFD series of bogie railcars adapts to the needs of transport operators. Each trainset is designed to allow for its evolution over the years, whether in terms of motorisation (hybridation or electrification), vehicle configuration (addition of one or two intermediate trailers to an existing trainset even years after commissioning) or interior layout. Thus all configurations exist and allow transport operators to define their rolling stock fleet as best as possible and to develop it as they wish

Arrangement

The range of CFD railcars is based on two types of carbodies, one with a maximum number of seats and one with level access at 550 mm from the top of the rail for people with reduced mobility. The motorization is integrated primarily on the flat-floor body.

The end vehicles are equipped with a cab with a wide driver's cab that complies with current standards, high-powered air conditioning, a disabled access toilet and two side access doors that are compatible with platform heights of 550 mm, 760 mm or 900 mm from the top of the rail.

Modularity

The interior of each vehicle can be fitted out according to the customer's specific requirements. It is thus possible to give preference to seating or areas for the transport of cycles either at the time of purchase or by choosing the CFD modular system allowing the change from one configuration to another in a few hours.

Traction system

The bogie railcars are available with a diesel electric power train or, on request, with a pantograph for catenary collection 750V DC/1500 V DC/ 25 kV 50Hz. For multi-box solutions, the electrical architecture of the trainset allows all existing or future energy sources (combustion engine, Li-ion batteries, hydrogen) to be combined and an electric traction motor or auxiliary simply added to the train line.

Driver's cab

The CFD railcar driver's cab is wide and spacious. It has a central operator's console and a large windscreen to ensure excellent visibility for the driver. The front part of the cab incorporates shock absorbers to dissipate the energy of a possible impact with another rail or road machine at a level crossing
