Ever Wanted to See How Fast BART can Really Accelerate?
« on: July 08, 2012, 04:11:35 am »
Well, now you can! Here it is; a largely uninterrupted clip of the speedometer as this BART train accelerates incrementally to its top operating speed. Enjoy:
Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Train Accelerating to 67 MPH (80 MPH Command Speed)
This video can also be used to program sounds for any future rolling stock for OpenBVE that uses similar architecture as this BART train ;)

Wow. That's a low top speed for manual operation.

If I remember correctly, the reason for this low top speed for manual operation is the long spacing
between fixed signal blocks on BART. When running in auto-mode, these fixed blocks are not needed for train safety.
