SmartRail World Most Read
As the year comes to an end, SmartRail World Editor Luke Upton digs through the year’s stories to find the ten most popular by page views… from mega mergers, and crazy subway maps to empty Olympic rail networks and super smart rail and metro IT we’ve seen it all. Our top ten is an eclectic mix and from all over the world. What’s your favourite?  Some of my favourite features from 2015 that don’t make the top ten but I really enjoyed include: Sydney Trains sets ‘mousetrap’ to catch graffiti vandals red-handed , Is there life after rail? New uses for old stations and PTC implementation: separating the facts from the myths. A big thank you to all our readers, contributors, supporters and commercial partners for your support in 2015. We’ve grown, we’ve changed and we’ve gained a lot of new readers! And all the team here are looking forward to sharing more international stories from the world of innovative rail and metro technology in 2015!

Regards and thanks,

Luke Upton and all the team at SmartRail World.
