RATIONALISATION OF THE DRIVING OF TRAINS

From the economic point of view, the reduction in energy costs for railway traction is a problem of considerable importance. In achieving this reduction in energy consumption, any application of an adequate technology for the driving of trains must be assessed on its true merits. This article establishes a scientific technology for the driving of trains, application of which makes it possible to achieve considerable fuel economies, to which the driver contributes directly without the need for special equipment.
