Simplify super-elevation and vibration code

Registered by James Ross on 2016-03-04

The current code for super-elevation and vibrations (oscillations) has not survived well with the viewer/simulator split (SE initialisation happens in the viewer, but only using simulation data, for example) and there is a lot of arbitrary calculations.

Here I am rewriting some of the calculations to base the vibrations on real damped oscillations of springs, and removing the time-based caps on super-elevation so the rotation exactly follows the track in all cases. Also, cameras attached to the vehicles will be rotated with them and the cab view no longer rotates on its own.
