Tilting Train
A TILTING TRAIN is a train that has a mechanism enabling increased speed on regular rail tracks . As a train (or other vehicle) rounds a curve at speed, objects inside the train experience inertia . This can cause packages to slide about or seated passengers to feel squashed by the outboard armrest due to its centripetal force , and standing passengers to lose their balance. Tilting trains are designed to counteract this discomfort. In a curve to the left, the train tilts to the left to compensate for the g-force push to the right, and vice versa. The train may be constructed such that inertial forces cause the tilting (PASSIVE TILT), or it may have a computer-controlled power mechanism (ACTIVE TILT)
