About this title


With the increasing demands for safer freight trains operating with higher speed and higher loads, it is necessary to implement methods for controlling longer, heavier trains. This requires a full understanding of the factors that affect their dynamic performance. Simulation techniques allow proposed innovations to be optimised before introducing them into the operational railway environment. Coverage is given to the various types of locomotives used with heavy haul freight trains, along with the various possible configurations of those trains. This book serves as an introductory text for college students, and as a reference for engineers practicing in heavy haul rail network design,


"This book offers an insight on all the aspects of heavy haul freight train technology and operations in a simple manner yet giving sufficient facts on engineering and design details involved. This will definitely be a popular hand book on this topic."
― Shyamal Kanti Biswas, Central Railway ( Indian Railways), Mumbai, India

"A comprehensive text featuring virtually everything the reader might want to know about heavy haul railroads."
― Thomas A. Philip, SEPTA, Pennsylvania, USA

"This book provides a comprehensive source of information on heavy haul locomotives and trains which will be a vital resource for designers and researchers working in this field."
Simon Iwnicki, Institute of Railway Research at the University of Huddersfield, United Kingdom

"I particularly appreciated how the authors were able to put together a complex technical subject, with a narrative approach that help the reader to follow a journey departing from the historical evolution of freight railways and arriving to the latest simulation techniques applied to modern locomotives.

This makes the book at the same time useful and friendly, helping students approach such a complex topic in a gradual and effective manner."
― Nicola Bosso, Politecnico di Torino, Italy
