We know Pressure = Force/Area.
& Force = mass *acceleration
As the two trains are Ideentical and have the same acceleration, the mass, acceleration, & the Area of contact is the same in both cases,
YES. The pressure is equal in both cases!!

But the solution to this question given says that since the angular speed is different thus centripetal force for both the trains will be different. I could not get this answer. Is it incorrect?
