Abstract [en]

In the Green Train research programme, the objective is to develop an attractive trainconcept in the form of a concept proposal based on economic assessments. Green Trainis to be an attractive express train for both business and leisure-time travellers. Highstandards of comfort can be motivated by passengers’ willingness to pay. One fundamentalidea is the wide carbody for services in Scandinavia to achieve lower total costsfor train traffic than a carbody with a normal, quite narrow European continentalprofile. The trains are thereby made shorter and 2 + 3 seating arrangements areoptimised for optimal comfort. Another principle is that the train must be designedto allow punctual station stops, also during periods of peak load. Boarding andalighting must take place within very tight margins, which means that doors, entrancesand luggage racks must be in well-considered locations and correctly dimensioned.
