Britons have always viewed their railway system with a mixture of affection, amusement and exasperation. Yet there were also periods in the twentieth century when Britain's railways were a source of pride and excitement. Many still recall when the train was their principal means of travel, whether to school or work, to visit friends and relatives, or to go on holiday. And it wasn't just people that went by train: the food that fed them, the bricks that built their homes, the coal that heated them, were all carried by train. This book celebrates this time when a train journey remained an adventure, and when the steam locomotives that made the journey possible were a source of awe and fascination. Those journeys are recalled in Yesterday's Railways, alongside the eventful journey made by all of Britain's railways from the ground-breaking years of the 1900s to the day in August 1968 that the fires were put out for the last time.

Use of big data has proven to be beneficial within many different industries, especially in the field of engineering; however, infiltration of this type of technology into more traditional heavy industries, such as the railways, has been limited. Innovative Applications of Big Data in the Railway Industry is a pivotal reference source for the latest research findings on the utilization of data sets in the railway industry. Featuring extensive coverage on relevant areas such as driver support systems, railway safety management, and obstacle detection, this publication is an ideal resource for transportation planners, engineers, policymakers, and graduate-level engineering students seeking current research on a specific application of big data and its effects on transportation.
