ok, the wheels aren't connected with axels. So does this make it good for low-floor trains then - the gangway could pass between the wheels where there is no axel, if there were no seats above the wheels? --martianlostinspace 16:23, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

Talgo 350[edit]

We need a reference to validate this phrase: "Talgo has also entered the high-speed train manufacturing market. "Talgo 350" trains will be operating at a top speed of 350 km/h" I have visited various websites and they state that the Talgo max speed will be 350 km/h but the question is to verify if it is being used at that speed and we need proper reference for that. The max speed for HST are 320 km/h in Korea and East line to Strasbourg in France.

solved: This series of trains are designed to reach a speed of 350 km/h (220 mph), although present lines and commercial services limit the speed at 330 km/h (210 mph).--Pechristener1 (talk) 01:18, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

This page and this ( seem to provide contradictory information. Gokaydince (talk) 14:39, 5 March 2009 (UTC)


When did Talgo introduce tilting ? I have found the information that it was at the end of the 70's. (Laurentien 22:22, 6 September 2007 (UTC))

Talgo Pendular is the first tilting generation.--Pechristener1 (talk) 01:18, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

This cannot be true. the UAC TurboTrain used passive tilting in the 1960s, and they apparently purchased the design from Talgo. This means that the Talgo design was considerably older than the 70's! It may have been that they didn't use it in a trainset from Talgo before that, but it definitely suggests more research is needed. Maury Markowitz (talk) 12:41, 1 November 2010 (UTC)


This article is best split into Talgo the company and Talgo the train. There isn't much about the train at present. Wongm (talk) 04:31, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

good idea--Pechristener1 (talk) 01:18, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Weird Nose[edit]

What's with the weird nose on the Talgo 350 power car? Very curious.

Is it really tilting outwards?[edit]

The article says the train tilts outwards in curves. Is this really true? Shouldn't it tilt inwards? --Avl (talk) 09:25, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

Ah, reading a bit more carefully I think I understand how it works. The wagons are hinged high above the ground, and the bottom part of the wagon does swing outward in curves, making the wagon tilt inwards. I'm not sure how to make this more clear, or if it even needs to be more clear. Other opinions? --Avl (talk) 09:28, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

Use in TGV[edit]

The article says the variation of the Talgo wheeling is in use in the French TGV. This really needs a source saying so, because TGV uses Jakobs bogies, which are to my opinion in no way related to the Talgo design. Jakobs bogies are normal bogies with wheels on a same axle and are similar only in the way that they are used between cars, not two bogies per car. Elmo Allen (talk) 18:16, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

Yes check.svg Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 19:41, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
