Core systems being tested

In this brief video you can see a car rolling away on it's own down a roughly 6% grade. We have used a modified version of the Davis formula that was developed by the Canadian National from extensive real world testing. This formula combines bearing resistance, general rolling resistance, track condition, air drag and turbulence, car weight, and current speed into consideration to calculate the resistance. This is combined with the grade of the track as well as friction from the curves and is then applied to the speed of the car to slow it up or down.

  1. i saw the last video in the list after the others, and i was wondering, ” will the trains be able to crash though homes and buildings? ”
    i hope that this can happen instead of the trains just passing straight through homes or buildings like the homes or buildings are just ghosts.
