How fast is enough fast? Review of the fastest trains in the world 2011–2013
As author of the article Jeremy Hartill in Railway Gazette International (7/2013) writes, since China became at the first place in the race for the fastest regular trains of the world, it begins to emerge among competing countries, divided into 3 speed groups - technically achievable speed, speed, cost-effective for the country's size and profitable speed in view of the transport market. Jeremy Hartill is a member of the British Society for Railway, who for many years is engaged in the development of railways in the world. At the same time he wishes to thank his predecessor in creating similar articles – to professor Colin Taylor and Brendan Fox publisher for assistance in preparing this article.

Metro in Madrid
Author: Marek Graff
Metro in Madrid, capital of Spain, was opened in mid-October 1919 by King Alfonso XIII. The first subway line ran from Cuatro Caminos to Sol, had 8 stations and was 3.48 km long. Currently, the Madrid subway has 238 stations, of which 38 are interchange stations: 27 at the crossing points of two lines, 10 - three lines, and one - four. In addition, 21 stations are interchanges stations with Spanish rail network (RENFE). Metro network consists of 12 lines with a total length of 293 km. In terms of size it is the second underground rail system in Europe and sixth in the world - after Shanghai, London, New York, Tokyo and Moscow. Metro network was well developed in 1995-2007, and used in 2011 by more than 634.5 million passengers. 11 pages.

Shinkansen trains class E6
Author: Marek Graff
The program of railway development in Japan adopted in 2000 defined objectives for the development of JR East in the coming twenty-first century, emphasizing the need to increase the speed to 360 km / h for Shinkansen trains. Thus, in 2002 was presented the project 'Fastech 360', the prototype train, which was supposed to be a base for construction of new rolling stock. Finally, the assumed speed was reduced from 360 km / h to 320 km / h, as a more economical and were built two trains, designated as E954 'Fastech 360 S' and E955 'Fastech 360 Z', both with an aluminum coach. 3 pages.

Analysis of the possibility of the realisation the control command system of train against public transmission networks in the compliance with recommendations of the norm PN-EN 50159
Author: Jacek Stępień, Jacek Kołodziej, Tadeusz Uhl, Jacek Blat
Control systems used on the railways realize both data transmission between users, as well as the transmission of control information between the central control system (operator) and executive devices. Due to the sensitivity of the transmitted data, such schemes shall be subject to special supervision, and many of the relevant standards describe both the threat for transmitted information and minimum security levels that are required in the system. The article presents an analysis of the feasibility of the control system used on the railways, based on the public transmission network. 7 pages.

Speeds of the train at the leaving of the station to the substitute signal
Author: Henryk Karbowiak, Andrzej Szymczewski
The main task of transport, including railway transport is to ensure the safety and traffic flow. Traffic safety in rail traffic control systems (SRK) is obtained by the use of appropriate components, systems and procedures. As a result of the proper functioning of railway traffic control system signal to enable the drive can be displayed on the semaphore. 4 pages.

Influence of the air temperature on the energy consumption of the electric traction on the example of the Gdynia trolleybus transport
Author: Mikołaj Bartłomiejczyk, Marcin Połom
Little efficiency of heat engines allows heating the interior of buses and other vehicles powered by liquid fuels and gas by a cooling system energy. Unlike the diesel engines, electric motor systems are characterized by high energy efficiency, which in the present technology development reaches 90-95% level. This means that heating of the vehicle interior is only possible by means of electric energy taken from the catenary. 3 pages.

The place and the role of individuals assessing the adequacy of applying the process of the risk management in the rail transport – outline of the problem
Author: Adam Jabłoński, Marek Jabłoński
The approach to the safety of railway transport in Poland, but also in Europe is significantly modified. These changes were initiated in 2004 by provisions of the Directive on railway safety. This directive launched the process of creating a new approach to responsibility in the processes of railway transport, clearly indicating that all railways operators, infrastructure managers and railway companies, should bear full responsibility for the system safety, each for their own. 5 pages.

Analysis of the technical condition of railway engineering objects on chosen railway lines of Opolszczyzna and Lower Silesia
Author: Tomasz Biczel, Robert Czachowski, Małgorzata Mazanek, Paweł Nurek, Tomasz Wierzbicki
The article is an attempt to analyse the results of inspections taking into account the common problems associated with the expertise implementation of bridges built in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century in today's regions of Opole and Lower Silesia. Authors try to, after the completion of a significant number of special inspections (approximately 30 bridge structures), draw conclusions on the structural condition acquired in the management of Polish State Railways from German Railways sixty years ago. Due to the similar design, the materials used in construction and rules for the maintenance the experience gained through the surveys can be directly transferred to the majority of bridges located in the former German Reich. 5 pages.
