    That, I do not know. I don't think anyone outside of DTG knows what calculations they have used for the determination of the physics of the rolling stock and locomotives.

    Vern, when toggling between front and rear with "3" or with "2", there is a very slight "fading in" effect but no gap in the sound.

    I beg to differ.
    Many branch-lines here were (and supposedly still are) just extensions of the mainline, particularly those which handle heavy loads such as wheat and coal.
