Why train engines are not turned off?

Trains, being large and heavy, need the optimal brake line pressure for its efficient stopping. For obvious reasons, loco pilots never compromise on brake line pressure. Another reason for not turning off diesel train engines, lies in the engine itself.

Does the area under an acceleration graph give change in velocity?

Good question. We only proved that the area under an acceleration graph for a certain time interval gives the change in velocity for that time interval for the case of constant acceleration, but the area under any acceleration graph will give the change in velocity, even if the acceleration is not constant.
