Introduction
An important area of the depot is the bogie maintenance area. Bogies are changed or
maintained regularly and the procedure is extensive. The high weight and large size of the
elements request special equipment and/or methods. Often bogie maintenance is located
in a special part of the depot. Task in this issue are the frequency of the maintenance, the
basis of calculation and the procedure itself.

Blackpool
At the eastern end of the depot a track runs at right angles to the two southern most
maintenance roads with turntables installed to provide access for bogies between the
heavy lifting berths and the bogie workshop area. The bogie workshop area will be located
in the south eastern corner of the workshop building. It is necessary to incorporate a
loading bay for road vehicles within the workshop which can be reached by the overhead
mobile crane, located in the bogie workshop area, so that bogies can be lifted from the
workshop floor onto a vehicle and vice versa.1

Cars for refurbishment are lifted off their bogies and mounted on rubbertyred
accommodation trucks. This would allow the bodies to be moved to non rail connected
workshops for refurbishment. The bogies would then be refurbished in a separate facility
and refurbished cars mounted on appropriate bogies on the completion of their
refurbishment. This approach would save a significant amount of track costs.

Depending upon the new vehicle design there may not be a requirement to have a wheel
lathe. If this is the case then it is suggested that an under-floor bogie drop pit is added to

allow for bogie changes to take place without the need to lift a vehicle on the jacks. Ideally,
a wheel lathe and bogie drop could be located together on one road, subject to cost.

The roof height should also allow the lifting of a vehicle clear of its bogies and also allow
the removal of roof mounted equipment by overhead crane. Bogie turntables could be
utilised on the south end berths to allow bogies to be moved from one road to the other
and/or into the bogie overhaul and machine shop area without the need to lift bogies
with the overhead crane. In this area, no overhead line is needed, with trams being moved
by shunting tractors or other means.2

Bogie turntables are necessary to provide movement of bogies to and from the bogie
workshop.

The workshop inspection pits should be 1.2 metres deep (below top of rail level) at the
sides to provide a comfortable area for working around the tram wheels/bogies for berths
A, B and C.3

Description of the bogie turntables
Two manually operated bogie turntables should be located at the south end of tracks
designated No.2 & No.3 within the Maintenance Workshop Building to facilitate the
transport of bogies removed from a vehicle to/from the maintenance tracks to/from the
bogie workshop.

The bogie turntables shall be designed, manufactured and installed to have a design life of
25 years and to operate a minimum load of 5000kg. Furthermore The bogie turntables
should support and rotate bogies with a minimum wheel base of 1880 mm for the new
fleet and a minimum bogie length of 2980 mm. For the heritage fleet the minimum bogie
wheel base is approximately 2743 mm and a bogie frame length of 3500 mm.Additionaly a
rotation of 360 degrees should be possible.

Two bogie turntables are necessary which have rails compatible with rail profile 56 E 1
from BS EN 13674-1:2003. Both of them should effort to operate with a minimum of one
person.

The Contractor shall provide both operator and maintenance training for the staff
designated for this work. The training shall take place at the operator's location following
commissioning, testing and handover of the turntables for service operation.

If applicable the bogie turntable supplier shall be responsible for the satisfactory completion
of all pre-delivery testing and on-site testing and commissioning of the equipment in order

to qualify for the issue of an Acceptance Certificate. These tests shall consist of all FAT, SAT
and SIT.4
