In the August issue of Future Rail, we examine the state of railways in Cape Town, South Africa, which have experienced a spate of arson attacks in recent years. With recent elections marking a step change in the country, will its rail services benefit?
The UK’s HS2 project may have gone a bit pear-shaped, but under a new proposal the iconic ‘Y’ shape of the proposed high-speed rail network could be significantly altered to benefit northern rail services. Then it’s to the coast, as we explore whether the country’s seaside railways are facing – and responding to - a greater threat from climate change.
Elsewhere, we set our sights on Swiss Railways, which is planning to introduce a swathe of new upgrades and services, and in a special picture feature we take a look at Glasgow’s new subway fleet; the first in the UK to run with no staff on-board.
Looking further afield, we profile Qatar’s efforts to expand its rail services ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and try to answer five questions on Alfa-X, Japan’s recently unveiled, long-nosed bullet train, which is expected to break speed records when it is introduced to regular service in 2030.
