Training Course Description
Rail Transport is one of the most important, commonly used and very cost effective modes of commuting and goods carriage over long, as well as, short distances. Since this system runs on metal (usually steel) rails and wheels, it has an inherent benefit of lesser frictional resistance which helps attach more load in terms of wagons or carriages. It is also one of the fastest modes of land transport. Furthermore, rail transport has emerged as one of the most dependable modes of transport in terms of safety. In this course, participants will learn about the standard requirments in the design and construction of railways.
