What is average speed of train when traveling?
- I found this source: , page 211, on timetable planning guidelines used by dutch railways. Goods trains are expected to use standard paths, calculated for a cruising speed of either 85 or 95 kilometres per hour (53 or 59 mph) and reasonable acceleration and deceleration. To get some room to compensate for delays, they must be able to run a bit faster than that. 110 kilometres per hour (68 mph) seems quite normal. PiusImpavidus (talk) 13:49, 8 February 2017 (UTC)
