Description: Safe, efficient, and reliable railway operation depends upon fundamental concepts of signaling, traffic control,
scheduling, and capacity. These principles are universal to rail transportation, but their application varies among
railways throughout the world. All are based upon the practices originating in England, Germany, and North America. Railway Operation and Control discusses signaling and traffic control practices from the English, German, and North American perspective as well as the
more universally applicable concepts of scheduling and capacity research. Chapters on train dynamics and basic terms used in railway operation provide necessary background information for those who do not have a railway operation background.
Additional Information: A glossary of more than 200 basic terms of railway operation and control has been added to this second edition.
