Saving fuel doesn’t always require a complex solution. Sometimes simplicity is the key. This is definitely the case with ScotRail’s fuel saving technique. Their secret? Coasting.
Simple as that, just putting the train into neutral and coasting on certain sections of railway. This solution has saved the company around one million pounds, and they are looking to find more coasting routes.
It’s inspiring to know that there are easy solutions out there. Energy conservation often gets overcomplicated to a frustrating degree, and it is comforting to see a story like this.
