Investigates and quantifies the variables that affect the maximum passenger carrying capacity of rail transit in four categories-- rail rapid transit (heavy rail), light rail transit, commuter rail, and automated guideway transit (AGT)--in North America.By moving from direct current to alternating current circuits, the blocks can be divided by an inductive shunt4 connected across the rails, avoiding the need for insulated joints. These are called jointless track circuits and both rails are thenanbsp;...
