Diesel and electric locomotive-powered, interurban train service is described for several countries including France, Germany, Norway, Sweden, and Great Britain. The commuter units in countries other than France and England are many times only three to four cars in length. In France powerful electric locomotives concentrate the maximum possible amount of traffic in single trains of great length and weight, but frequently average 70 mph from start to stop.
