The general expression for train resistance is thus: R = AW + BV + CV2 where: R equals total resistance W = weight V = velocity A = resistances that vary with axle Conventional passenger train = 4 to 8 hp:trailing ton BNSF Fast UPS test train = 6 hp:trailing ton Rapid transit = 10 hp:ton.   A Train in Winter tells the fascinating story of the French resistance during World War II. The author, Caroline Moorland, focuses her book on the women of the French resistance. These women might not wield guns or plant bombs, but they do house refugees in their hotels, print papers in their basements, and hand out flyers in the streets/5(K).   Train Resistance: *=Kg; RHP= */=HP. A train resistance of kg/tonne is on the high side of a loaded train. It is important to place all empty wagons in one hook which will only add to the train resistance per tonne and may be difficult to haul at maximum permissible speed with an existing fleet of locomotive. Figured by the Clark formula, the total resistance per ton of a passenger train running at a speed of fifty miles an hour on a straight level track, is pounds. By accurate records with his dynagraph car, Professor P. H. Dudley found the total resistances of an express train running at a speed of fifty-one miles an hour, to be 11 pounds.
