This book contains a structured 12 week course for rail transport planning. The material is directed at university students, who are familiar with transport planning but have not yet been exposed to rail transport planning. The subject presented is thorough and provides a comprehensive review of many of the issues that arise when performing rail transport planning. The book includes a review of the different types of rail systems, including metros, commuter rail, light rail and trams. Monorails and tourist railways are also discussed in detail. Also included is a discussion of the different types of rail infrastructure that is commonly used to construct a rail system. The book contains a chapter on freight. Double stacking, bulk materials, and terminal design as discussed. Sugarcane railways are also discussed. Station design is also reviewed. The design of stations is important to the movement of passengers through the station, and the best designs get passengers quickly and efficiently through the station. Much discussion is made of the economics of rail transport, as rail as a transport mode is very expensive to install and operate. Detailed discussion of demand estimation, and estimating changes to passenger numbers is included. Methods to describe a rail system are detailed. Key parameters and ways of describing railways are discussed. Also included are methods to draw a rail system This book contains a structured 12 week course for rail transport planning.

In 2001, the Council of Ministers and the European Parliament adopted the so-called First Railway Package. Comprising three Directives, this was intended to open up the rail freight market to competition and help to improve rail's share of the overall freight market. In 2006, however, the Commission published a report concluding that the implementation of the Package was inadequate and has committed itself to recasting the Package. In this report, 'Recast of the First Rail Freight Package (HL Paper 90-I)', the Committee looks at which elements of the Package need amending and which need clarification.

These conference proceedings include a collection of articles presented at the RailExchange conference in October 2017 at Newcastle University, UK. They will be useful for researchers in developing countries looking for opportunities of knowledge exchange. The RailExchange project aimed to develop sustainable railway education in Thailand, via international partnerships and industry collaborations based around stakeholders' expertise and experiences. It involved staff exchange (academics and researchers) between Mahidol and Newcastle University for joint research and curriculum development and also organizing railway conferences and workshops in both Thailand and the UK. The papers published here focus on rail-related issues and present a perspective of a widely understood 'exchange' in academia and industry environments. 'Exchange' is perceived as rail knowledge exchange between partners, rail staff exchange between academia and/or industry, research exchange between teams, student-lecturer knowledge exchange, academia-industry collaboration, etc. In addition, more general rail-related papers are also included.

First published in 1998, this volume is certain to be the definitive work about the practice of land-use and transport planning in Hong Kong. Dimitriou and Cook explore the historical developments, current issues and problems, policy and planning responses and new directions. Hong Kong has experienced remarkable economic growth as the ‘Gateway to China’ and its land-use has become a model for other cities in the region and for China as a whole.

Improvements in the performance of a freight transport system can be achieved either through technological innovation or by using advanced planning tools. This volume includes contributions on planning which cover the following topics: - analysis of current trends in developed countries, - demand analysis and forecasting, - flows simulation and prediction, - shipment and delivery problems, - regulation problems, - investment evaluation. Papers consider such applications as warehouse location, crude oil transportation, newspaper distribution, the trucking industry, rail planning and seaport systems. Transport issues in North America and Italy are described and compared. The papers in this volume are revised versions of contributions to the International Seminar on Freight Transport Planning and Logistics held in Bressanone, Italy, in July 1987.

This report presents guidance on evaluating the potential feasibility, cost, and benefits of investing in rail freight solutions to alleviate highway congestion from heavy truck traffic. An extensive research effort is documented and accompanied by a set of guidelines that present a three-phased approach to evaluating rail freight solutions: preliminary assessment, detailed analysis, and decision making. This report will be useful for transportation planners in state and regional transportation agencies, freight planners in private transportation companies, and senior decision makers who control the funding andimplementation of transportation investments.
