With the June update (Min. Build 28962), there is a new parameter, which can modify the brake deceleration of trains.
You can adjust this with the (also new) mod settings in the loading menu.
The default value of the game is 2.5 m/s², which sometimes seems very hectic.
A realistic value, also default of this mod, is 1 m/s².
