I am seeming to have an issue with linking YouTube videos now, since they changed the format of their site.

Am I getting senile, or are others having the same issue?

No problem :think:

click "youtube" in your post and between the youtube brackets insert the video code which is located between the "v" and the following "&" in the url. Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2ZMhxd12OM&feature=related

Not much to see, but it's a class 1216 (Siemens ES64U4) on a test run on the High Speed Line in the Netherlands.

I am quite sure that everyone seated in the train felt heavier for a bit on that run...

The most impressive part of that is the rate of acceleration. Crazy.

That happens, if you power up a single locomotive with 6,400kW power plus 500kW short time boost. :thumbup:

The following image shows the actual acceleration on a single class 185. From 0 to 100kph within a platform length :grin:

That's 220 kph (136.701662 mph) in 41 seconds. Incredible acceleration for something of that size, especially taking into account the adhesion problems compared to something like a car (rubber to asphalt).
