Reliability, in the sense of safety and punctuality, is the principal objective of railway management to keep ahead of competition. Reliability efforts of European railways and the impact of modern methods for improving reliability are discussed. Further progress in this field depends on modern information systems and complex data processing. The proposed European data-processing system and the already installed systems of several European railway authorities are introduced. In addition to safety, reliable systems were also shown to have the highest economic gain. Modern computers help to overcome the poor out-of-date information characterized by the high error rate of manual systems.
