The analysis of the logic of choice of design options for the locomotive underframe part is carried out. It is established that the solution of the problem situation in the choice of the design of the units of the outfit part is the development of a multivariate strategy for creating and mastering the production of various design variants. A new design of the traction drive is proposed and patented, instead of a technologically complex integrated axial thrust drive, it is offered to use a support frame drive with an axial reduction gear at the early stages of implementation, with a subsequent transition to an axle-type traction drive of the aggregate type, combining high processability and the possibility of reducing the TM weight.
