When Electric Railway Engineering was originally published in 1915, the electric railroad was rapidly transforming the nation¿s cities and suburbs. How trolley cars, interurban cars, and electric freight locomotives operate, and how a railroad must be constructed and maintained to support them, is the subject of this wonderful historic book. This new printing is an exact replica of the original, and features nearly 400 pages of text and numerous diagrams.
The text has been reviewed for present day accuracy and, where necessary, has been modified or expanded to include reference to recent trends or developments.

This textbook covers the very wide spectrum of all aspects of railway engineering for all engineering disciplines, in a 'broad brush' way giving a good overall knowledge of what is involved in planning, designing, constructing and maintaining a railway. It covers all types of railway systems including light rail and metro as well as main line. The first edition has proved very popular both with students new to railways and with practicing engineers who need to work in this newly expanding area.In the second edition, the illustrations have been improved and brought up to date, particularly with the introduction of 30 colour pages which include many newly taken photographs. The text has been reviewed for present day accuracy and, where necessary, has been modified or expanded to include reference to recent trends or developments. New topics include automatic train control, level crossings, dot matrix indicators, measures for the mobility impaired, reinforced earth structures, air conditioning, etc. Recent railway experience, both technical and political, has also been reflected in the commentary.

Since the advent of steam engines and higher throughput railways during the early nineteenth century, the rate of development has been rather steady and incremental. The development of advanced electronic control and command systems, increasing levels of automation, and electrified high-speed railways over the past few decades have transformed the rail transportation posing it as a competitor to aviation. Modern railways are no longer the sole forte of civil and mechanical engineering and involve a broad multidisciplinary engineering disciplines from advanced computing, telecommunications, and networking to big data analytics and even AI. This volume addresses the diverse, evolving, and advanced engineering disciplines including enabling practices and processes involved in shaping modern railways.

The book comprises a number of research papers presented at several Computers in Railways Conferences. It has been compiled by Giuseppe Sciutto, from Università degli Studi di Genova, and contains selected papers originating from different countries, such as France, Germany, Japan, Italy, Spain, USA, and Taiwan. There is a strong lack of agreement regarding the safety approaches adopted by different transportation modes while the sudden increased demands for security for both freight and passengers has provided a more uniform methodological approach. The papers in this volume give an overview of the current state-of-the-art analytical approaches, methods and simulation tools for the modelling and analysis of the safety and security of transport networks. Topics include e.g. the role of the notified bodies in the process of the railway liberalization, safety at the platform, computer architectures and safety integrity level apportionment, potential dangerous object detection on railway ballast using digital image processing, as well as taking advantage of some complementary modelling methods to meet critical system requirement specifications.

Railway Engineering has been specially designed for undergraduate students of civil engineering. From fundamental topics to modern technological developments, the book covers all aspects of the railways including various modernization plans covering tracks, locomotives, and rolling stock. Important statistical data about the Indian Railways and other useful information have also been incorporated to make the coverage comprehensive. A number of illustrative examples supplement text to aid easy understanding of design methods discussed. The book should also serve the need of students of polytechnics and those appearing of the AMIE examination and would also be a ready reference for railway professionals.
