The rejuvenation of railways demanded for so long by users, operators and by sheer historical necessity is at least on the way and the nineteenth century methods, equipment and organization are to be transformed into ones fit to stand up to the needs and expectations of the twenty first. The signs are emerging not only by the way of new up to date stations, extended city and suburban lines, new rolling stock and faster and much improved services but, above all, by the way of extensive and ever growing momentum of railway electrification which in the end is the only effective, civilized and environmentally justifiable method of moving large numbers of people and large quantities of goods in what is likely to become a rather densely populated world.
