Summary
" TRB's Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board, No. 2289 consists of 20 papers that explore recovering from disrupted railway traffic situations, high-speed rail versus air transportation, high-speed route improvement optimizer, optimizing railway stopping patterns, risk assessment of positive train control, dual-mode and new diesel locomotive developments, the next generation of intercity corridor bi-level equipment, portable emission measurement systems, and slab track mass-spring systems.This issue of the TRR also examines resilient fastenings, movement of water through ballast and subballast, sources of ballast fouling, quantifying railroad ballast-fouling conditions, stochastic rail wear model, asset condition assessment, development of base train equivalents, forecasting short-term volumes, value for railway capacity, performance-shaping factors for railway operations, and analysis of major train derailment causes. " -- pub. desc.
