TRAVEL. Tilting train sickness? Many people suffer from motion sickness, but questions remain as to whether tilting rail cars may worsen the problem.Rickard Persson from the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) has researched the issue and believes the phenomenon does indeed exist, even if Swedish rail operator SJ won’t openly discuss it.“They are probably glad that not so much information has come out,” he said.He thinks rail com­panies want to avoid the issue because potential corrective measures such as tracks with wider curves and new driving methods would be costly.Thus far, SJ has refrained from including direct questions about motion sickness in customer surveys.“We see the problem as very marginal,” said Nyman, who adds that SJreckons motion sickness affects less than one percent of riders.
