Maximum Speed

The term "maximum speed" has many meanings here. It can reflect:

  • maximum average speed between two scheduled stops based on the running times in timetables – daily operation.
  • maximum speed at which a train is allowed to run safely as set by law or policy on a straight section in daily service with minimal constraints (MOR)
  • the maximum speed at which an unmodified train is proved to be capable of running
  • the maximum speed a specially modified train is proved to be capable of running.
