One main characteristic of Talgo trains from the very beginning in 1942 is the use of single-axle running gears with independently rotating wheels and non-active steering systems. This feature has allowed the use of other technical solutions that are usually more difficult to implement in conventional rolling stock, such as the lower coach floor, the automatic variable gauge system or the natural tilting technology. The present paper deals with the singularities in the modelling of the dynamic behaviour of Talgo trains, due to their particular characteristics.
