Abstract: [From the Background section] This report describes the background leading up to the development of the X, the potential U.S. applications, and the technology in some detail. Basic and specific job training, which can be combined, should take place off the job (ie away from production and other pressures). Familiarisation training needs to be done on the job, under close supervision. The Rider-operated lift trucks ACOP L provides more details on what each stage involves. How long should a basic training course last? Keywords: high-speed train, noise prediction, noise mitigation measures. 1.
