Wet snow, freezing rain and scorching heatwaves are just some of the adverse weather conditions that could affect the multi-national Rail Baltica project according to a new report, which aims to highlight the impact of climate change on major rail construction works.
We explore the reasons why Chicago's metro is getting a major facelift a century after its creation, and trace the history of Eurostar after it celebrated its 25th anniversary this year. We also profile maintenance and engineering challenges involved with keeping two of the UK’s mountain railways on track, and ask whether North American railways are prepared to greet an increase in total freight demand of 88% by 2035.
Finally, we speak to Arriva about the implications of its recently launched deaf awareness training tool for London Overground employees, investigate Deutsche Bahn’s simple solution for overheating railway tracks, and ask which start-ups in the rail sphere will be the ‘ones to watch’ in 2020.
