Curve transition steering has not been previously considered in idealised steering analysis and active steering bogies have been developed with considerations focused on the constant curving difficulties. A new bogie design, called an AY-VS bogie, is presented allowing yaw actuation of the bogie with variably controlled steering angles. This design is an advance on the previously published AY-FS bogie. Yaw angle and steering angle calculations have been performed for a linear transition are used to identify the steering angle correction required for AY-VS in a curve transition. The bogie is shown to provide improved stability performance over AY-FS. Curving improvements have also been achieved.
