The GS20Mn5 steel is a low carbon manganese steel used for cast freight bogies manufacturing. The impact toughness of such steels for freight bogie solebars must be at least 17J/cm2 at -60°C according to GOST32400 standard. In the present work, the effect of cooling rate after the austenitizing at two temperatures on the structure and mechanical properties of GS20Mn5 steel is investigated, including toughness at -60°C. The cooling rate varies from 1 to 5.4°C/Sec. The optimum toughness and strength are observed after two hour austenitizing at 930°C and quenching rate of 2.8°C/Sec where the impact energy mean values reached 32J/cm2 at -60°C.
