In today's maturing railway industry, the key to getting - and staying - ahead is to keep up with the latest developments across all sectors involved in railway technology. There is pressure upon the rail industry to deliver more customer benefits, with greater cost-effectiveness, faster - whether that customer has freight interests or is a passenger. The demands being made on the rail networks is steadily increasing and manufacturers are being pushed to produce higher speed, higher load, rolling stock while considering stringent safety conditions. "Railway Rolling Stock" brings together contributions from all areas of the rail industry and academia and offers the opportunity to see the most up-to-date information and technological advances from experts in the field. This extensive collection of papers covers such topics as: the passenger environment; rolling stock reliability and maintenance; technology and developments in rolling stock; and wheels and brakes. "Railway Rolling Stock" should be of great interest to all those engineering managers, contractors, engineers and consultants, involved in any aspect of railway technology.
