THE DORTMUND SUSPENDED RAILWAY (H-BAHN). ASPECTS OF THE DEMONSTRATION LINE

H-BAHN DORTMUND. DIE BESONDERHEITEN DER BETRIEBLICHEN DEMONSTRATIONSANLAGE

In 1981 Dortumund University began building a demonstration line for a suspended railway system (H-Bahn) between two University centres. The aim was to prove that the system as a whole was a viable proposition from the technical point of view, to assess operating costs and examine how far it could help to relieve traffic congestion on the roads. The authors describe the constraints with which the line layout has to comply, particularly from the environmental point of view. The basic operating concept involves regular-interval traffic and a special call service, both computer-controlled. The experimental line will be operated for a two-year trial period.
