PROBLEMS OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF EUROPEAN RAILWAYS

PROBLEME DER ENTWICKLUNG DER EUROPAEISCHEN EISENBAHN

The energy shortage and concern for the environment have contributed to making the railway one of the most important modes of transport. The different scientific, technical and economic problems can only be resolved by united action within the Union of Railways, taking into account the interests of the Lander covering the Largest areas. In order to improve European railway traffic the tariff system for freight in transit must be improved, container forwarding times must be reduced, and the capacity of the railways will have to be increased. Eastern European countries will be called upon to take part in a modernization programme for Europe as a whole.
