NON-CONVENTIONAL RAIL TRANSPORT SYSTEMS FOR SHORT-DISTANCE TRAFFIC

UNKONVENTIONELLE BAHNSYSTEME FUER DEN NAHVERKEHR

Since the early seventies four railway systems have been developed in the Federal Republic of Germany, with the support of the Federal Ministry of Research and Technology. Two of the systems have since been abandoned, while the overhead railway or H-Bahn has gone into service in Dortmund and the M-Bahn is waiting to undergo trials in Berlin. The author gives a short description of the different systems and their specific functions and assess the likelihood of their going into commercial operation taking into account customer requirements and services offered by conventional modes.
