Railway tourism – luxury trains (3). Elite railway tourism in Africa
Author: Joanna Hawlena
Development of rail transport on the African continent took place under specific conditions, resulting not only from the climate and environmental difficulties, but mainly from the colonial policy goals. Separatist plans of colonists meant that in Africa there was no concept of building an integrated network of continental railway lines connecting most important cities, economic and tourist regions, as was the case in many regions of the world. In this case, you can observe the emergence of characteristic enclaves of rail transport infrastructure, causing that, in relation to the continent's difficult to clearly define the term "African railways". More often we meet rather names associated with particular regions, in which the railway reached a certain level of development. It is not surprising, therefore, that the nomenclature African rail transport is most common term "Egyptian railways", also called "north African", "railway leading through the land of the Pharaohs", "Kenya" or "South-West". These terms correspond to reality, they relate to regions where railway obtained an appropriate technical level and is the most important means of transporting people and cargoes. 7 pages

Institutional-legal conditioning of integration of managing transport in agglomerative areas
Author: Łukasz Oleszczuk
The need to increase the degree of integration of public tasks by local government units (LGUs) was been raised repeatedly by politicians from the local level as well as national experts and NGOs. Several times they were undertaken initiatives for the introduction of a comprehensive regulation in this field, but no one came to life due to the current interests of politicians or misunderstanding of the spirit and ideas of self-government. The lack of specific provisions for integrating public tasks by local governments is particularly noticeable in the areas of agglomeration, where the processes of overlapping responsibilities of the various levels of local government are particularly visible. 7 pages.

Railway bumpers - classification, requirements, design, examinations. Part II - the requirement
Author: Wojciech Gamon
According to PN-EN 15551 + A1 railway bumpers are energy absorption devices, consisting of a housing, resilient system, shield and plate (Fig. 1), arranged on both ends of the rail vehicle, remaining in contact with adjacent buffers of the other vehicle. They have a very large impact on the safety and dynamics of rolling stock. Therefore, there are a number of requirements which must be met in order to guarantee an adequate level of safety for passengers and goods. These requirements apply to both their location on the vehicle, markings and dimensions, as well as issues directly related to their work, that is, static and dynamic characteristics and strength of the whole structure. 3 pages.
