Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
trains typically gain speed/brake with much lower accelerations

Sorry about that, of course that is irrelevant - the energy input is the same. However, there is a further pointof how often acceleration/deceleration takes place - with street lights and tunrs at corners, I think cars are ahead even if trains have many stops.
