Excerpt from Lightning Express Railway Service: 120 To 150 Miles Per Hour

The expenditure of power required would necessitate the strict limitation of the load to the exigencies of the traffic. It would therefore be inadvisable to undertake, as on ordinary lines, the obligation to despatch by any particular train all the passengers who may desire to travel by that train. It would be preferable, as the line would be devoted exclusive to this one class of traffic, to reduce to a minimum the carrying capacity of each train, and to increase the number of trains, so as to equalise, as far as possible, the strain on the central distributing station hy subdividing the power into relative small quantities. The result would be not only to reduce working eases, hat to comply more satisfactorily with the requirements of traffic, as passengers would be certain of always finding a train starting within a short time. With auch speeds it is also desirable not to use cars coupled in the ordinary manner, as in case of any accident to one of a series the impetus on the others would only increase the damage. The method would therefore be to work with trains of sufficient capacity, composed of a limited number of vehicles coupled in a special manner so as to really form only one carriage of several links, und the number of such trains could be multiplied according to require mente and to the exigenäes of safety.
