RAIL 21 ON NEW TRACKS. A STUDY OF POSSIBLE SCENARIO'S FOR THE FUTURE OF PASSENGER TRANSPORT BY TRAIN

RAIL 21 OP NIEUWE SPOREN. EEN STUDIE VAN MOGELIJKE SCENARIO'S VOOR DE TOEKOMST VAN HET REIZIGERSVERVOER PER SPOOR

In 1988 RAIL 21, Tracks into a new century, was presented as a look into the future. Now the circumstances for personal railway transport has been changed, responsibility for infrastructure and exploitation is separated. The need for infrastucture has become bigger, there is more flexibility wanted in management, operating costs are no longer financed, and there are more requirements as regards safety, speed, environment protection, and investments. This report discusses these problems and presents some recommendations for the modifications in RAIL 21. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 884059.
