What does a real life driver do when he/she is behind a slow train?

    • What does a real life driver do when he/she is behind a slow train?

      I have a question about what is the right thing to do if you can “feel” that you are behind a slow freighter or a train that stops at all stations.

      1; Always try to reach top line speed so that the line behind you clears faster, but resulting in having to stop/slow much down because of running into many red signals?

      2; Adapt the speed so the signalblocks clear ahead of you. Once you feel you can go faster, then do it? (This requires some intuition ofcourse)

    • It depends on the train driver...
      a good train driver knows the line and how to conserve energy.
      a not so good train driver will be speeding up and slowing down a lot wasting tons of energy.

    • To sum up:
      No rules, but good drivers drive intuitively.

      My instincts was also to adapt the speed, but not being a train driver myself (though i would love to be) i wondered if there were rules concerning this.
