Anatomy 4

The low-profile bogie which is needed if a long-wheelbase vehicle is at the rear of the train. Unless it is coupled to another vehicle the free-castering axles do not behave themselves correctly and can cause running problems. In particular, the train cannot be pushed without risking a derailment and it cannot take points/switches.

 

Note that, as this is a bogie and will naturally follow the curvature of the track, no restrictors are needed, hence they have been omitted.
