Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9924301A1] A railway wagon having two bogie supports (8) for bogies (9) in which the pocket (8', 40, 8') extends over the supports; the pocket is formed of two end parts (8') above the bogies and an intermediate deep part (40) between the bogies. The extension of the pocket over the bogies from the intermediate part enables a large container to be carried on the wagon whilst using the pocket sides to maintain structural strength and at the same time keeping within a restricted structure gauge.
