The latest Railtech Magazine is all about international and high-speed trains. Featuring exclusive interviews, the digital magazine is now freely available to download.
International and high-speed trains are in the spotlight as they can play a large role in the transition to sustainable mobility. Night trains are making a comeback, for example as part of the Trans Europ Express 2.0. Collaboration is needed to realise an extensive and reliable cross-border railway network which passengers can easily book, so it becomes an attractive alternative to flying.
