The Urban Rapid Rail Vehicle and Systems Program is an integrated development program directed toward improving high speed, frequent-stop urban rail systems. The objective of the State-of-the-Art Car (SOAC) is to demonstrate the best state-of-the-art in rapid rail car design, with two improved cars using existing technology. Primary goals for the cars are passenger convenience and operating efficiency. This document, Volume 2 of the SOAC Final Test Report, presents the test results for the subsystem functional testing of state-of-the-art transit cars. The purpose of these tests was to show compliance with the SOAC Detail Specification (NTIS no. PB-222 147). After adjustments and changes where required, all subsystems met the requirements of the detail specification. Chapters of the report present instrumentation, test procedures and results, and conclusions. Items discussed in the chapter on test procedures and results are car body, lighting, wiring, equipment, main propulsion control and motor rotation, braking, propulsion auxiliaries, car weight, pantograph, air compressor, hostling panel, and visual.
