Leaning towards the future: Countrylink's X2000 tilt train trial

In November 1994, Countrylink committed to an agreement with Statens Jamvagar, the Swedish State Railways (or "SJ" as they are known) and ABB Traction AB for a ten month lease of three X2000 Tilt Train cars for trial in NSW. The purpose of the trial was to evaluate tilting technology (as opposed to the X2000 itself) under local conditions. This paper provides a brief introduction to the X2000 and an overview of the trials.
