Caltrain EMU DMU Comparison

  1. 1. CaltrainFuture Technology Assessment Prepared for: Palo Alto Rail Committee Prepared by: JPB May 26, 2011
  2. 2. Committee Requested Topics• Electrification Project (4/13/11)• Electrification 35% Design (4/28/11)• EMU vs. DMU (5/26/11)• HSR and Caltrain MOU (TBD)
  3. 3. EMU vs. DMUEMU DMU
  4. 4. Locomotive Hauled Consist (LHC)• Typically one powered vehicle per train• Heavy – acceleration proportional to train length
  5. 5. Electric Multiple Unit -- EMU • Self propelled electric vehicles • Distributed traction • Light weight – good acceleration
  6. 6. Diesel Multiple Unit -- DMU • Self propelled diesel-mechanical or diesel-electric vehicles • Distributed traction • Medium weight – medium acceleration
  7. 7. Current EMU Market SEPTA Silverliner V Metra Highliner Alstom Coradia Siemens Desiro Stadler KISS
  8. 8. Current DMU Market Nippon Sharyo DMU (SMART) US Railcar (Portland WES)Stadler GTW (Austin Cap Metro) Siemens Desiro (San Diego) US Railcar Double Deck (SFRTA Miami)

  10. 10. Caltrain-Specific Constraints• Budget• Right of Way• ADA Accessibility• Tunnel Clearance• Platform Length• Downtown Extension (Transbay) – Tunnel height – Exhaust fans
  11. 11. Uncertainties – 30-year DecisionsEnergy Pricing • Diesel • ElectricityChanging Federal Regulations • ADA • EPAEconomy • Funding • RidershipTechnology Advancements
  12. 12. EMU vs SL-DMU vs DD-DMU Assumptions • 2035 EIR Operation – 114 trains per day • Try to maintain similar operating schedule – maximize station stops and minimize trip time • San Jose to San Francisco (Gilroy shuttle independent of EMU/DMU) • New EMUs or DMUs, Locomotives and coaches retired or moved to Gilroy • Fuel = $4.0 per gallon • Electricity = $.09 per kWh SL-DMU = single level DMU; DD-DMU = double deck DMU

  16. 16. Recommended Technology: EMU• Proven technology and large supplier pool = low risk• Frequent service (6 TPH or more during peak)• Highest acceleration allows service to maximum number of stations• Manageable fleet size• Fits current platform lengths• Lowest local emissions (noise and air quality)
