    [Falcon-full] -- 19m03s

    [Rhinoceros-full] -- 21m00s

    [Basic Boar] -- 15m37s


    Therefore ,the fastest is Basic Boar.

  • Answer:

    The Wild Boar is fastest with 937 seconds (15:37) needed for total travel time to deliver 25 tonnes

    (Falcon is 1143 seconds, Rhino is 1260 seconds)

    Calculation (ALL Steps): see table


    Train Accel time & distance to max speed Time & distance at max speed Total 1x triptime incl return & 20 sec WT # Trips needed Total time to deliver 25T
    Rhino 130km/h / 3,6 = 36,1m/s max speed
    130km/h / 14acc=
    9,3 sec to max speed x 36,1 / 2 = 168m traveled
    2000m -168m = 1832m / 36,1 =
    50,75 seconds
    (9,3+50,75) x2 + 20 = 140,1 seconds x9 1260 seconds
    (21:00)
    Falcon 160km/h / 3,6 =
    44,4 m/s max speed
    160km/h / 3acc =
    53,3 sec to max speed x 44,4 / 2 = 1184m traveled
    2000m - 1184m = 816m / 44,4 =
    18,38 seconds
    (53,3+18,38) x2 + 20 =
    163,3 seconds
    x7 1143 second
    (19:03)
    Boar 95km/h / 3,6 = 26,4m/s max speed
    95km/h / 6acc =
    15,8 sec to max speed x 26,4 / 2 = 208 m traveled
    2000m - 208m =
    1792m / 26,4 =
    67,9 seconds
    (15,8+67,9) x2 + 20 =
    187,4 seconds
    x5 937 seconds
    (15:37)

    If it ain't Dutch, it ain't much!

    Which one will deliver the needed amount of goods fastest?

    Basic Boar (no upgrades).


    Formula:

    TotalTime=CEILING(25/TractiveForce)×(20+2*(TimeAccelerating+TimeAtMaxSpeed))

    TimeAccelerating=Speed/Acceleration *

    TimeAtMaxSpeed=(2000-DistanceWhileAccelerating)/(Speed/3,6)

    DistanceWhileAccelerating=Speed/2/3,6×TimeAccelerating


    * if the distance covered while acceleration is less than 2km, which it is for all 3 trains


    Boar takes 5 trips. 16 seconds accelerating, 68 seconds at max speed, 20 seconds waiting time, 16 seconds accelerating, 68 seconds at max speed. 5×(20+2*(16+68))=940 seconds.

  • Thank you everyone for participating!

    The correct answer is Boar

    Congratulations! 🎉

    You just announced the results!

    I suspect an error in your calculations!

    Please check!


    Without going into details ...

    Please explain to me how Boar accelerates to maximum speed in 15 seconds, traveling only 13 meters !!!

    According to the formula it should be for 208.91203703703707 meters !!



  • There is definitely an error in your table!

    When calculating "meters to max speed (m)"
