• Braking distances for freight in Australia?

    From Ulf.Kutzner@web.de@21:1/5 to All on Tue Apr 7 00:47:17 2020

    found a report about the Dec 2019 accident with
    a 2000 tonne freigh train hitting another one
    stopping at a signal. Train driver (R.I.P.)
    failed to stop at an earlier signal indicating
    danger and only started Service braking after
    entering a 30 km/h speed limit zone, ignoring
    an announcement 2500 meters ahead.

    Would like to know: Which are maximum braking
    distances for freight in Australia running
    at legal maximum speed?

    Found GW 16 as a standard braking curve but not
    the curve itself.

    Regards, ULF
