   Single-axle bogies  evaluated  
Due to the significant share of bogies in overall train mass, single-axle running gear can make an appreciable contribution to mass reduction. Curve-steered bogies with self-steering wheelsets (KERFs) are a mature single-axle solution for local and regional trains.
Technology field: Mass reduction
