With the TBOGI system railway companies can improve safety, significantly increase asset lifespans (both wheels and rail infrastructure), reduce fuel/energy consumption, reduce wheel squeal noise, and greatly increase the efficiency of rail grinding and rolling stock maintenance.
Sydney Trains use TBOGI, and they concluded in a 2016 paper that “wagons that steer well have been shown to experience more than 50% less wheel wear (and consequently impose 50% less rail wear), more than 10% less fuel consumption, and offer maintenance savings of more than 10% compared to wagons that steer poorly”.
