The Washington State Department of Transportation has published a business case study on the possibility of delivering an ultra-high-speed rail line connecting the key cities of Portland, Seattle and Vancouver. What are the potential benefits and risks of an ultra-high-speed rail line for the Pacific Northwest?
Focusing on London, UK, we explore how the capital’s famous Oyster Card has evolved alongside current passenger trends, and analyse signalling problems that are hindering the city’s Crossrail project.
After Toshiba Digital and Consulting Corporation recently announced it was bringing its digital twin software package to Greater Anglia timetables, we ask how AI can help keep trains running on time.
Finally, we map out successful (and less successful) crowdfunded train projects around the world, and round up cutting-edge tech solutions that could assist with overcrowding on train platforms.
