In Russia they violently crash trains for tests.
Not really fast. What is that good for?
My entertainment, I guess.
Most train collisions take place at speeds that are relatively slow, 40 MPH or less. As a matter of fact most accidents take place in the rail yards.
The pressure on the train is already incredibly immense. Any faster would make it all as thin as paper.
Conclusion: do not enter the accordion wagon and you’ll be fine
Impressive. Check this out:
This wagon looks like its made from cardboard boxes.
Nope they are basically steel boxes with the trucks bolted onto a frame. It is very costly in both wear and tear on engines and in the amounts of electricity to move heavy passenger trains. Goods trains in Russia are in a separate class from the passenger trains. They use bigger more robust rolling stock and more powerful engines for goods. It is natural.
Por fin una persona hablando en castellano!!! Hurra Hurra!
Estoy en Bs As, Argentina Y vos?
Habla Inglés, perra!
I want that job.
Where are all the “passengers” inside the train car?
It was written on the train “test train”
Looks like Russian trains are about as safe as Russian cars and Russian planes!
…and you think the safe ones are…?
In Soviet Russia, trains violently crash YOU for tests.
The second car bent like cardboard and was not very fast.
force = mass x acceleration.
Did they have little dummies strapped into the seats?
Yes, the car was full of Nashi Youth volunteers.
This was probably a setup for an education film for the locomotive driver students.
Holy smokes! :O The first car did OK, but the second… CRUNCH. If I ever go to Russia I’ll be sure not to be in the middle car.
The second car looks like some kind of commuter train.
Blah blah Die Hard blah blah shave me head blah blah black russian sheep
Looks like a good demonstration of why you don’t mix light rail and heavy rail cars.
What a backward country. In the west we use supercomputer simulation and 3D modelling without wasting resources. No wonder Russia doesnt even have a supercomputer to do such studies and test.
you must be really smart, good job.
Is it because of those supercomputers that in the “Western world” trains collide killing people, brand-new Big Dig tunnel ceilings in Boston collapse again with fatalities, bridges fall, the list may go on… And all this at cost at least 10 times higher than what russians spend… and no collisions whatsoever with metro operating since 1930… And since when India became part of the West?
Where are the air bags?
