Front End System Includes Nose Flaps and Operator's Cab Roof, Talgo 250, Spain

For the Spanish highspeed train Talgo 250 (AVES-130) we have developed a complete front system including energy absorption system. Total energy absortion of almost 2 MJ and a type 10 coupling, model One4, which is concealed behind front flaps when not in use, ensure outstanding safety and optimal aerodynamics. The precisely synchronized components are supplied as pre-assembled and painted units. This means the system can be installed in the vehicle and made ready for work very quickly.
