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

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.

The various airmen leading the air war had great differences of opinion regarding what to target in the European theater of operations in support of Operation Overlord. The central leadership figures were Lt. General Carl Spaatz, USSTAF commander, and Air Chief Marshal Trafford Leigh-Mallory, AEAF commander. Each of these military men obviously wanted to support the planned Allied invasion, but they held differing opinions in regard to how to best support the invasion troops. They were greatly influenced by both personal experience and the advice of their respective scientific advisors, Walt W. Rostow and Dr. Solly Zuckerman. Also, Air Marshal Tedder, Deputy Supreme Allied Commander, and Air Marshal Harris, Commander of the RAF Bomber Command, contributed to the decisions to carry out the transportation interdiction campaign. This research focuses on the period January 1944 through the end of June 1944. It includes a literature review of published memoirs and historic accounts of the individuals involved in the decision to implement the transportation plan. The archives of the Air Force Historical Research Agency were accessed to obtain actual accounts and directives implementing the pre-D-Day interdiction campaign. Numerous facts support a discussion of each of the airmen’s interests and the controversy that surrounded the transportation campaign. The implementation of the transportation interdiction campaign resulted in the successful denial of German reinforcements to the Normandy beachhead.
