    Railtrack intends to undertake deployment of a state-of-the-art radio system, on a national basis, to support Railtrack's operations well into the 21st. century. A digital radio system is to be deployed in order to meet this aim, replacing the existing analogue networks. DART (Digital Advanced Radio for Trains) is the name given to the radio system to be deployed. The DART project is to develop a ... View full abstract»

    The Docklands Light Railway (DLR) is a light rail rapid passenger transit system which serves the needs of residents and businesses within the London Docklands regeneration zone. DLR has a policy on noise which states the intentions of the company for the system-wide control of noise arising from train operations and sets down target maximum noise levels at adjacent buildings. In locations where t... View full abstract»

    The introduction of transmission systems based on the synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) has created new opportunities for flexible and resilient transmission networks. This paper looks at reasons to deploy SDH in railway networks, and reviews some of the design considerations. The complementary technologies of WDM, ATM and flexible multiplexers are also introduced. Some of the new services which... View full abstract»

    When one person (train) operation was introduced it was necessary to install equipment within the confines of tunnels, platforms and trackside and indeed within the rolling stock itself, to provide a method of safe operation at the platform to train interface. This has and still does present major challenges associated with the wide range and diversity of platforms and structures on the undergroun... View full abstract»
