Описание: This second volume of High Speed Rail Planning, Policy and Engineering examines one particular potential high-speed rail line in the United States, looking at the possibility of operating high-speed freight trains to help increase revenues to finance the system. The evaluation includes a look at fixed property, track and terminals and patronage. The proposed route is examined in some detail and the best types of trains for the route are also discussed. The author brings attention to existing conditions, potential line improvements, and development of the proposed line, as well as costs for operating and equipment, particularly fuel, motive power, track and structures.
Описание: High Speed Rail Planning, Policy and Engineering looks at the question of where a high-speed passenger rail line would be most productive and how it could be profitable. It investigates the political issues confronting high-speed rail funding and location. This first volume looks at recent achievements in high-speed rail, including record high speeds for trains operating with steel wheels on steel rail. It also covers the history of high-speed rail operations, particularly in the United States. The book examines possible existing routes for development of high-speed rail systems, how right-of-way and terminals might be configured, and the possibilities of track structure. This volume also reviews operating parameters, including the relationship between cost and speed, the issue of security in all aspects as relates to high-speed rail, and different types of high-speed rail systems are evaluated, including true purpose-built high-speed systems, hybrid systems, and what are called blended systems.
