Increasing speeds and more comprehensive automatic control of systems operation marked progress in rail transportation during 1974. In the United Kingdom, five-hour express service was inaugurated on the newly completed all-electric London-Glasgow British Railways run. Very-high-speed vehicles racked up thousands of kilometers in test runs on the French National Railroads.
