Introduction to CBTC system description

With CBTC, moving blocks introduce to the concept of contiguous track, because the railway is represented as a single contiguous block, rather than a set of adjacent blocks. This means that the safe separation behind the preceding train is dynamically calculated based on the maximum operating speeds, braking curves and locations of the trains on the alignment. Also, in this way the capacity of the railway is extremely increased.

Thales to install CBTC into London Underground Network, as part of the 4LM (4 Lines Modernisation) programme

After awarding a 1billion euro contract, Thales will deliver an Automatic Train Control (ATC) system for four of London Underground’s lines: District, Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City.

World’s First Hydrogen Tram in China

The tram runs on hydrogen power via on-board fuel cells. Refuelling takes just three minutes, after which a three-car tram capable of carrying as many as 380 passengers can run for about 100 kilometres.

New Tube For London Due To Start In 2022

New Tube for London (NTfL) is a programme that would introduce new trains and signalling on several London Underground lines between 2025 and 2033. The trains may not have drivers, however the ASLEF and RMT trade unions that represent the drivers strongly oppose this, saying it would be unsafe.

Canadian railways: The TTC signalling system

Automated trains able to safely run closer together, hiking capacity on the overloaded line, thanks to the "moving blocks" technology.

Bombardier PRIMOVE: wireless urban mobility

Based on automatic inductive power transfer, PRIMOVE liberates e-mobility from the constraints of cables, wires and plugs - making urban transport more flexible and convenient than ever before.

The largest project in Alstom’s history: Alstom X’Trapolis Mega

One of the biggest project in rail transport worldwide and the largest contract ever signed in Alstom’s history.

Is Public Transport really cost-effective? A Siemens study.

Around the world, public transport systems are ageing, underdeveloped or simply unable to cope with the demand of a growing mobile population. Limited funds and resources are an obvious constraint to transport development.

Super Maglev at 3000 km/h

A Chinese research team has recently tested a Super Maglev prototype that could theoretically travel at 3000 km/h.

A really tight Railway line: market traders have to move out and even dismantle their shop displays when the train is approaching

The locals know when the train is coming (at four or six o' clock) so they all move out of the way and continue talking while the train goes past.
