Estimation on the enhancement of permissible speeds around curves for the tilting train on the Gyeongbu line of the Korean Rail Network

This paper evaluates the time saving and running time of a tilting train in Gyeongbu, Korea, compared with conventional diesel multiple unit trains and non-tilting electric multiple unit trains. The potential for speeding up of tilting trains on curves was assessed. Speed and travel time data are presented, along with data on riding comfort and dynamic running stability. A significant reduction in travel time was found, compared with conventional trains.
