Product Description


'Currently, rail engineers are under enormous pressures simultaneously to improve quality of service, increase safety and yet simultaneously cut costs. They need to understand not just engineering, but also management, economics, government policy and legislation. This text can be strongly recommended for the excellent coverage it provides on all these issues, drawing on worldwide experience.'Chris Nash, University of Leeds, UK'If you are interested in learning about the role of the railway in the transport system as well as the technical and financial aspects of its business, in Professor Profillidis' book you will find accurate, well-supported answers to your questions, including a clear explanation of thecontribution that this mode of transport could make to the conservation of the environment.' Andres Lopez Pita, Catalonia Polytechnic University, Spain Review of Third Edition:'Now in its third edition, this amazingly comprehensive book far surpasses the wildest dreams of the most devoted trainspotter and railway buff, while seriously offering a new scientific approach to the management and engineering aspects of railways...the author is an internationally recognized authority on track mechanics and transport economics, a fact clearly reflected in the wide range of world examples and references which make the book such a valuable source of reference, guidance, planning and implementation...the text is considerably enhanced throughout by an outstanding wealth of illustrations...the subject range and depth is amazing...the language is lively and the presentation and layout make reading easy for student assimilation and fast reference.' The RoSPA Occupational Safety & Health Journal'

Very comprehensive and easy-to-follow book. It gives a general view of the railway world and the many aspects to consider. I would say that this is one of the best general railway books that I have read.
