Thread: SEPTA operating speed

  1. #1

    Default SEPTA operating speed

    What speed do SEPTA Regional Rail (Silverliner) trains operate at, in general (not accounting for slippery rail or other factors)?

    Depends on the line. Eitehr a max speed of 79mph, or 100mph. The EXACTS of which area depends on the track speed marked.

    Thanks for that!

    Does anyone have particular speed limits for each line, on average?

    For that, you'd likely have to find an employee timetable. Odds are one's available out there in the internet, either as a hard copy or a .pdf. I have sevreral of the latter, but only for railroads in my area

    SEPTA's a big agency with many different operations. Speeds depend on where and what line. For a good overview of public timetables, see: http://www.septa.org/schedules/rail/index.html. Those of course don't tell you operating speed, only average timetable speed between stops (with a little calculation and knowledge of distance between stops - the latter can sometimes be hard to find).

    For speed limits, you need an employee timetable, as others have stated. Google is your friend; examples: http://multimodalways.org/docs/govts...01-17-2000.pdf and http://www.multimodalways.org/archiv...PTA/SEPTA.html. Wikipedia can be a good place to start too. Use your basic internet searching skills...
