Bogie storage units are welded structures made of structural steel. Rubber plates are installed in the support areas for bogie frames to provide a safe loading support for bogies when stored on top of each other. They allow the stacking of up to three bogies (2 motor bogies and 1 trailer bogie).
An overhead crane must lift the bogies using chains or slings and rest them on the storage unit until they are securely and properly placed. Once they are secured the chains or slings used to lift the bogie onto the storage unit must be removed.
The load is managed only by the inside of the supports. The outside of the supports will only be used for the correct positioning of the bogies. The lower part of the bogie storage unit is dimensioned to fit 3 bogies.
