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. Over the past few years, events have highlighted the need for tighter restrictions and more stringent safety legislation to reduce the risks of track and signal failure, maintenance issues, human error etc. "Railway Safety" examines the necessity of new systems, such as APT (automatic train protection) and TPWS (traing protection warning systems) striking a balance between cost-effectiveness and the need to regain public confidence in the railways. "Railway Safety" brings together contributions from all areas of the rail industry and academia and offers the opportunity to see the most up-to-date information, case studies and technological advances from experts in this field. This collection of papers covers such topics as: safety management; risk, error and testing; signalling safety and maintenance; on-train safety systems; fire and ventilation; and leaves on the line. "Railway Safety" should be of interest to all those engineering managers, contractors, engineers and consultants involved in any aspect of railway technology.
