1) Work = force • distance
Work = F•s = 4.9•105•600 =2.94•10^8 J.

2) work done = energy gained
Kinetic energy gained = 2.94•10^8 J It had 0 KÓ to start, so this is its change in KE.
3) This is also the final KE of the train.
4) KE = m•v²/2.
2.94•10^8 = 0.5•3.3•10^4• v².
V = sqrt (2.94•10^8/0.5•3.3•10^4) = 133.5 m/s
