Interesting it looks like SK have started the tilt train project again after it was canned years ago due to currency/debt problems.
When I was in england in the 1970's I remember seeing prototype tilt trains on the Old Dalby test track.
wow - nice!
We have had tilting trains here in Sweden since 1990.
Japan introduced the worlds first public service tilting train in 1973 although the technology was first used in 1938 in the US.
Wow ... technology from the 1960's used in England, Italy and Canada. It does allow slightly faster speeds but dedicated tracks and more powerful engines are the better answer for high volume passenger service. See the French TGV and the German ICE trains.
@Nepean109 I think it'd be more for passenger comfort. My dad had an old MG years ago that would lean into the corners like that. To this day I'm not sure how they engineered it to do that.
Couldn't watch asian television..... all those devilish rumbling noises..... Btw, old technology.
