How does train bogie/ coach travel in curve

1.The wheels on each side of a train car are connected with a metal rod called an axle. This axle keeps the two train wheels moving together, both turning at the same speed when the train is moving. ... This is where the wheels' geometry comes in. To help the wheels stay on the track their shape is usually slightly conical.

2.The only part of a train wheel that actually touches the rail is around the size of a 10 cent/20pence coin. Think about that the next time you're hurtling along at 130Kph. Actually - the wheel flange very rarely touches the rail. What keeps the train on the track is the conical angle of the wheel profile.
3. Why do trains not derail?
the reason these trains never tip is also because of their conical wheels. The conical wheels' shape, every time the train tips, the amount that it tips acts to restore the train upright. This force, called a restoring force, is stronger when the train is heavier meaning heavier trains are more stable .

What does LV written on the last coach of the train mean?


On the last coach of the passenger train, along
with X, LV is also written on a small board. This LV means Last Vehicle. Both these signs are mainly for railway officials and employees. These signs have nothing to do with the common man. If any railway officer or employee does not see X or LV written on the last box of the train, he immediately informs the nearest control room. If these two signs do not appear on the last compartment of the train, it means that the last compartment of the train or some part of the rear part is separated from the train.

Why write X on the last coach of the train?


Even if you have never traveled by train, you may have seen many trains.
You may have seen a very large X written on the last coach of the train. But have you ever wondered why there is such a big X written on the last coach of the train, what does it mean? I will give you complete information about this X here. Actually, this big X is only written on passenger cars. This X is always written on the last coach of the train, which means it is the last coach of that train.
