Sharing the same power source with the pneumatic brake system, the size of the tilting system is compact (space saving), which is preferable for the limited under-floor mounting space of the rolling stocks used on narrow gauged tracks. Without using hydraulic power, the system can realize clean and easy maintenance. Also the lightness of the system contributes to the element for speed up and assures less pressure or damage to the track.
