Maailma kiireimad rongid

Taavi @ 22.02.2010 17:13 | Registreerunud: 01.04.2003

Determination of the fastest rail vehicle in the world varies depending on the definition of "rail".

The Japanese JR-Maglev is the fastest non-conventional train in the world, having achieved 581 km/h (361 mph) on a magnetic-levitation track. Unmanned rocket sleds that ride on rails have reached over 10,400 km/h (6,462 mph), equivalent to Mach 8.5. The fastest manned rail vehicle was a manned rocket sled, that travelled at 1,017 km/h (635 mph).

The French TGV (Train à Grande Vitesse) is the fastest conventional train in the world, using powered metal wheels riding on metal rails. In April 2007, the TGV broke its own 1990 record with a new speed of 574.8 km/h (357.18 mph) under test conditions with a shortened train (two power cars and three passenger cars) and larger wheels to reduce angular speed in the motors. [1]

The fastest scheduled trains in daily service is the Chinese CRH service Harmony express on the Wuhan–Guangzhou High-Speed Railway. CRH3 has a normal operating speed of 350 kilometres per hour [2]

Eesti ostab enam kui nelja miljardi eest uusi ronge

Elektriraudtee ja Šveitsi rongitootja Stadler Bussnang AG allkirjastasid rongihankeleppe, mille kogumaht ulatub 4,4 miljardi kroonini.

Esimene elektrirong jõuab Eestisse ülejärgmise aasta novembris, testsõite alustavad elektrirongid 2013. aasta alguses. Sama aasta aprillikuuks jõuavad Eestisse ka esimesed kaks diiselrongi. Katsed kestavad kuus kuud.
Tootjal on kohustus tarnida kõik elektrirongid 2013. aasta lõpuks ja kõik diiselrongid 2014. aasta suveks.

Warren Buffett On The Future of Rail

Taavi @ 28.02.2011 20:27 | Registreerunud: 01.04.2003

Buffett investeerib raudteesse:

The Oracle of Omaha, Warren Buffett, on his $26 Billion investment in the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad, from his annual report:

[We] are enthusiastic about BNSF's future because railroads have major cost and environmental advantages over trucking, their main competitor. Last year BNSF moved each ton of freight it carried a record 500 miles on a single gallon of diesel fuel. That's three times more fuel-efficient than trucking is, which means our railroad owns an important advantage in operating costs. Concurrently, our country gains because of reduced greenhouse emissions and a much smaller need for imported oil. When traffic travels by rail, society benefits.
