HIGH SPEED TRAINS HALVE THE TRAVELLING TIMES OF TODAY

SNABBTAGEN HALVERAR DAGENS RESTIDER

The SJ intends to construct a "curve-tilting" high speed unit with a speed limit of 200 km/h, which means that the travelling times on several lines will be halved. The objective is to be able to run fast on existing track. The low density of population in Sweden does not allow a straightening of track full of curves and development must therefore mainly be concentrated on the rolling stock. A survey of foreign experiences with different high speed systems is also given and an account of the technical limits with respect to developing conventional rolling stock for high speeds.
