Each year ASME's Rail Transportation Division puts together a report on the state of the art of railway engineering in countries all over the world. The art appears to be moving toward speed, style, and function. From the passenger train to the locomotive, speeds are projected beyond the level of 120 to 150 mph. As the saying goes, "speed is of the essence." As shown in this report, it was a banner year for passenger trains. Presented are excerpts from the two-part report.
