This issue of Current Topics includes over 85 abstracts of reports, conference papers, books and journal articles which focus on aspects of railway safety. Specific topics covered include: accident prediction; accident simulation; risks and safety measures at railway crossings; prevention of fire in railway tunnels; risk of derailment; vandalism; and rail vehicle safety. These items have been selected from the material added to the Transport Research Laboratory's Library Database between 2002 and 2004. Much of the relevant English language published literature from the UK, USA, Australia and Europe is included; some of the non-UK literature is included courtesy of the OECD International Transport Research Documentation (ITRD) database.
