Siemens at Graz recently completed a redesign, manufacture and supply of more than 1,400 replacement bogie frames for London Underground’s Central Line and next will be supplying its SF7000 design for use on the Thameslink line.

According to Siemens, the SF7000 bogie that will be used on Thameslink is based on proven subsystems in both the domestic and international markets.

The SF7000 is ideally suited for passenger rail vehicles at speeds of up to 160km/h, for use as suburban, local, regional and inter-regional transport.

Siemens claims it has optimised the SF7000 to meet the performance and functionality of the UK rail network and the Thameslink specific application.
