'Sustainable Rail Transport’ book is out!

14th Jul 2017

We are extremely happy to announce that a book on ‘Sustainable Rail Transport’, published by Springer and written by many of the RailUniNet (Global Network of Railway Universities supported by UIC) members, is now available. This edited monograph presents the selected papers from RailNewcastle Talks 2016, being held in Newcastle UK, June 2016. Overall the book includes 14 chapters, which focus on a wide spectrum of railway research, including topics such as rail operations, access charges, interior train design, baggage handling, rail freight, multimodal transport, ITS, rail marketing and more. The book is addressed to rail researchers, but might be of interest to graduate students, too.

The book is published in a Springer’s series of ‘Lecture Notes on Mobility’ edited by Gereon Meyer under the title: “Sustainable Rail Transport. Proceedings of RailNewcastle Talks 2016” edited by Marin Marinov. To find out more visit Springer’s website: http://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783319586427
