The fastest locomotive in the world tests new wagons for D

The new large-area car is first being tested for the Czech track on the VUZ test circuit in Cerhenice near Velim, the world’s fastest production locomotive in the world. Technical and safety tests require a test room at a speed of 200 kilometers per hour.

The speed record that the locomotive broke this year at a speed of 357 km / h can be seen in this article. This powerful machine now circles the test circuit and tests new Siemens wagons for Czech tracks.

The locomotives run alone (unlit) in the test room. The test circuit passed the high speed, and at all times the values ​​were recorded and stored in the computer.

In the case of other men, which took place with the wagons lit, then these experts then separated the breeding locomotives and wagons. Thanks to this, they gained information about the breeding of the wagons themselves.

The locomotive used weighs 87 tons and has a specific kinetic breeding. Without changes to the measures, the data obtained would be invalidated. You will find more technical parameters in this article.

With another newspaper and an escort from Siemens, we are embarking on a record locomotive of the Eurosprinter ES64U4-A series with the designation E190 050, which is thus part of the Taurus generation. There are a total of ten guys in the cabins. In normal operation, there is a driver in these cabs.The fastest

… The locomotive is disconnected from the car and we hear the command: “Pnov, crush him!”

Accelerated disconnection of the locomotive all present uncompromising drinks on the cabin wall. An unnamed colleague leans with such a force within two from the engine room that they open under pressure (the construction is played an important role, but I find out and I do not know the engine room). Let’s see that the 200 is a game for the Taurus tet generation.

In a moment, the Eurosprinter stops on a 13,272-kilometer circuit. Someone pull out their cell phones and prepare the stopwatch. Opt will start and test zan.

We reach a speed of 207 km / h after 24 seconds. Let’s find out that the locomotive, together with the five new cars, needs only 1080 meters and 35 seconds to stop from this speed. Bn modern trains stop at similar distances “only” from 120 kilometers of speed. The maximum permitted speed on the Cerhenice circuit is 230 km / h.

During a single circuit, we will start at a speed in t of not less than 200 km / h. The operation of the emergency brakes is tested.

After driving less than one circuit, we come to the tested cars from the other side and continue to go.

What does the engine room of the fastest locomotive in the world look like?

The corridor in the engine room connects the corridors of the driver’s cab. On the floor you can see mc cables for the test room.

Testing of large trucks

Let’s go to the tested large cars for the first time. Opt to test the brakes, this time the bag at the car. If you pull the safety brake on such a train, m driver option stopped cancel. These high-speed lines have long tunnels and bridges, and for safety reasons they therefore have to stop and after entering them.

The tests before the newspaper are carried out by starting at a speed of 200 kilometers (this is the maximum speed of these cars made for D) and a set of brakes only wagons. The locomotive brakes are switched off this time. After our performance, according to m.

By the way, the high-quality trains for which these large-scale cars are intended have been operating on Czech railways for fifteen years.
