Description/Abstract

Two recent features have described the remit of Rail Research UK, the ‘virtual centre’ formed by railway researchers from nine Universities. The first focused on Research Theme A on ‘Engineering Interfaces’ and the second on ‘Whole System Performance’. The third of RRUK’s research themes focuses on the needs of passengers and the impact of the railway on the environment. In the first three years of the RRUK’s existence ‘Theme C’ of RRUK has run a programme of research projects that include: passenger comfort, delivery of the ‘journey product’ for both passengers and freight, the future role of rail in integrated transport policy and the options for traction power in the future.
