Locomotives are the power packs of the trains. The bogies have to be as robust and reliable as the locomotive under which they are mounted. Special consideration is given to the proper structural layout of the frames as they undergo considerable wear by the traction forces from the locomotive and the drives to the rail. Different speed ranges require adequate drive systems. Especially in the case of high speed locomotives, a clever integration of the motors and the drive units into the bogie system is a prerequisite for successful operation.
