Abstract

The material discussed in this book consists of recent research work of the authors, which was presented during RailNewcastle Talks 2016. It is a joint publication that includes a discussion on rail developments, policies and practices from all over Europe and beyond. Although it has a rail research focus, the material is excellent for the preparation and delivery of rail, transport and logistics-orientated courses and university-based programmes. This book is written with the support of UIC, which is the International Union of Railways.
