The train runs fast, it all depends on the headband! The power of the sightseeing train depends on the front of the train. Everyone knows that cars are front-wheel-drive. Why do sightseeing trains use rear-wheel drive? What are the advantages of rear-wheel drive? Now let’s learn more about it.
Benefits of a Rear-wheel Drive Layout for Trackless Train
Simplify the Steering Mechanism and Reduce the Turning Radius
If the sightseeing train is driven by front wheels, the front wheels must both steer and drive. Combining the transmission of the train and the steering wheel is very complicated. It is troublesome, difficult and inconvenient for the driver to manipulate the steering wheel. On the contrary, with rear-wheel drive, the front wheel can often rotate a larger angle because the front wheel’s transmission structure is relatively simplified. Such sightseeing trains usually have a smaller turning radius.
Get Better Motivation
Generally, rear-wheel drive is used for premium cars and vans, and we know from the results. Rear-wheel drive will be even more powerful. Because the rear wheel is driven, the rear wheel is the driving wheel, and the front wheel is the driven wheel, which is equivalent to pushing away. Sightseeing trains are just to get better power and draw more passengers without appearing weak.
Cost of the Train
Our common, cheap rear-wheel drive is the front-rear drive of common vans. Not to mention, this configuration requires a long drive shaft to transmit engine power to the rear wheels. This has led to rising costs. Therefore, most cars use front-wheel drive, and the trolleyless sightseeing train has a small motor and can be installed on the rear axle. In addition, the electric sightseeing train does not have a huge engine. No matter where it is arranged on the front of the train, space is sufficient, as long as you have a reasonable transmission mechanism.
