If im not mistaken, a 1" impact like they tried, has like 2000 ft lbs of torque. that thing was on there.
Less than what you would think. It was the equivalent to a glancing blow, approximately at a 25 degree angle. That would significantly cut down on the Delta V, or change in velocity, which, when combined with some fancy math, can be converted to G-Force. Very survivable crash, even in a regular vehicle. The Delta V was probably around 30 mph change. Definitely would feel it later that night.
Okay...so...what time does the first train leave?Oh crap, MATH!
