The railway track maintenance instruments and equipment – the bogie structure is complex and consists of support and floating frames, springs and friction absorbers. The high load bearing structure requires constant inspection at manufacturing and maintenance levels.
Centre buffer coupler is a device that connects one rolling stock with another. It is centrally positioned at both sides of the bogie and allows it to move independently and adjust for track curvature and elevation change. The importance of rail track gauges cannot be overlooked as these devices allow the train to move while remaining coupled. The high quantum of force in action requires constant checks and balances while manufacturing and maintenance to prevent decoupling/ parting and derailment accidents.
Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) design coaches and Integral Coach Factory (ICF) design coaches are the two coaches that are being commonly used. Railway tools and equipment should be able to cover both kinds of bogies.
