S933 - Transport Scotland's Rail 2014 consultation

Description

Rail 2014: Railway Engineers Forum submission to Transport Scotland.


Abstract

Transport Scotland's Rail 2014 consultation sought views on the delivery of passenger rail services in Scotland. This submission expresses the views of the Railway Engineers Forum (REF) a cross industry group which includes the IET Railway Division. For both passenger and freight services the challenge is to enable increased, efficient use of the railway network and to realise the environmental benefits that rail travel can deliver. It may be appropriate to consider the possibility for additional electrification, beyond current projects, so that the current reliance on fossil fuels can continue to be reduced.
