THE TECHNOLOGY OF RAIL PASSENGER SERVICE. PASSENGER SERVICE EVALUATION. TECHNICAL REPORT 3

This report provides a basic description of the technology associated with rail passenger service. The report represents a state-of-the-art overview based entirely on secondary references; it is not a detailed engineering study. Due to the importance of the track over which the trains operate, the first section of this report addresses certain track considerations. The second section of the report provides a description of the equipment used in intercity rail passenger service. This information will provide data that will assist in subsequent analyses of alternative courses of action that the State of Texas might pursue in considering rail passenger service.
