Train planning for self-owners

with one comment

twitter, @alisonw, 'Higher speeds don't reduce rail capacity' [...] (?)

Since HS2 started, railway twitter has been host to copious ludicrous and technically illiterate statements about the project. So it’s little surprise to find a claim like ‘higher train speeds don’t reduce capacity, different speeds of consecutive services reduce capacity’ posted by a ‘pro-EU bitch’ (to quote the bio).

Rail line capacity, train speed and block length (Bombardier)

But it is surprising is to find someone who claims to be a train driver, weighing in, with an epic and memorable self-own on the topic.

  1. Hilarious, and we can even explain this in the same way for roads! Its already the measure applied to M25 when traffic is heavy to increase capacity and keep the traffic moving with VMS speed limits, going faster = greater vehicle separation required, fewer vehicles flowing through…
