RAILROAD RESEARCH: IDENTIFYING WITH TOMORROW

A revival of interest in rail transportation in Canada finds the Transportation Development Agency of the Ministry of Transport supporting numerous rail research programs; formation of a Railway Association of Canada/Transportation Development Agency Rail Advisory Committee has undertaken identification of major problem areas not now being studied and is fostering use of the total resources of the industry in solving these problems. Problems being studied are line capacity, cold-weather effects on locomotive operation, and a rail test facility. CN and other Canadian railroads and equipment suppliers have also been doing their own research in areas such as motive power, track/train dynamics, track and cybernetics.
