  • In this paper, we propose a pilot study to deploy the Railway Conflict Detection and Resolution System(RCDRS) in the context of Korean Railway(KORAIL). KORAIL plans to deploy in near future RCDRS, which is a decision support module placed on the top level of the Railway Traffic Management System(RTMS). This study entails the review of the state-of-art researches and projects in the field of the railway traffic management, as well as the analysis of the traffic characteristics of the major railroad lines in KORAIL. The analysis provides a basis to choose a solution approach for the railway conflict detection and resolution problem that each individual line faces. This study plays a role as a pilot study for a full systematic approach, in which interactions between lines require further advanced analysis to take the entire KORAIL lines into consideration rather than a myopic approach.

  • Purpose: A large number of the mobility impaired have increasingly used the railway station, so the application of UD(Universal Design) on urban railway station has been interested. However, the current criteria used in domestic areas have concerned about the effective administration of railway station facilities rather than the needs of he mobility impaired. Of diverse facilities in railway station, the platform is considered as an important space due to many transportation users' riding or transfer in railway stations. Therefore, this study aims to explore the detailed criteria in adapting ideas from UD to platform within railway station. Methods: This study explores the criteria by evaluating findings from previous studies. First, all criteria related to platform in domestic and foreign areas are taken together and analyzed, and appropriate criteria first are established. Based on these, the current situation of platform facilities in railway station is evaluated. Then, the detailed criteria applicable to railway station platform are concluded, by reviewing types of the mobility impaired and principles of UD. Result: Findings from this study are as follows. First, the current criteria applied to railway station platforms lack ideas of UD, while the criteria used in foreign countries adequately reflect the ideas of UD on railway station platforms; therefore, the better criteria applicable to platform facilities in domestic railway station are necessary. Second, standard criteria used in domestic areas with newly additional criteria suggest that platform facilities should be established according to those criteria. Taken together, the better platform facilities should be provided to railway users through the application of UD to railway station platforms. Implications: For the future users in railway station platforms, the additional research on criteria of UD as well as diverse types of spaces within railway stations should have been continued.

  • In recent years, technological advancement in the railway sector and speeding up of logistics transportation have been achieved. The newly constructed high-speed railway and the newly constructed or improved general railway are being applied at the maximum speed of 200 km / h or more, It is classified as high-speed railway. According to the national railway network construction plan (2011 ~ 2020, the second), domestic railways are promoting the speeding up of many railway pioneers. Therefore, to secure safety facilities for high-speed operation, a tunnel alarm control box (TACS), an optical intrusion detector (OID), a rail status control panel (RSCP), a dragging detector, a safety switch (SS), a meteorological detector, Earthquake Alert System (EAS), Maintenance Crew Cross Railroad Device (MCCRD) and Train Approach Indicator (TAI). In recent years, there has been an ongoing accident involving train operators, For this purpose, many functions must be secured to secure the safety of the operator. In this paper, we review the additional functions of the tunnel alarm system for operator safety in the tunnel section. It is necessary to secure the function to protect the dangerous situation from the accidental entry of the tunnel alarm device by the operator's mistake. We investigated the monitoring and warning methods for unauthorized persons, In addition, due to the increase in the speed of the railway, an increase in the destructive power caused by collision with animals in the tunnel can lead to derailment of the train. As a safety function to prepare for dangerous situations, The study was conducted. Further, the high speed of the railway can cause derailment of train due to collision with animals in the tunnel. In order to prevent train derailment accident, we monitored the entrance of the animal to the railway tunnel and studied ways to prevent it.

  • Recently with the rapid development in mobile communication, the mobile phone are utilized in many fields of railway system within country and abroad and its use tends to increase continuously. In the railway system, the applicable realm is spreaded to the fields of railway signal communication, railway operating, track maintenance, reservation and information service, also its role is expected to increase. In this thesis, we are surveying the usage application of home and abroad mobile phone in railway system. Studying the present condition of mobile communication in railway system, we are viewing the application plan and the direction of development.

  • The coldproofness should be studied in order to operate the freight car by connecting the South and North Korea Railway. Actually, there is no standard for coldproofness in South Korea Railway, The standard for coldproofness of the Russian Railway, the Chiness Railway and the North Korea Railway was studied. From the analysis of these standards, the standard of coldproofness was proposed for the freight vehicle connecting the South and North Korean Railway.

  • The article expounds that the speed competition is the motive force of each transportation means. It also analyzes the current condition of the speed of Chinese railways. The developing strategy for Chinese railway is to raise the speed of the existing lines as a primary step and to construct the high-speed railway in selected sections concurrently, which proved that constructing high-speed railway in Beijing-Shanghai area is the best choice.

  • IEC 62278, a standard for Railway applications of RAMS, was established in 2002. This IEC standard is based on CENELEC EN 50126 and covered overall railway fields. Activities that had to be performed from concept to decommissioning and disposal of railway system life-cycle, were contained in this standard. On the flow of internationalization, our Railway Authorities and railway support industry need to understand and apply this standard to railway fields. In this paper Railway RAMS in IEC 62278 is introduced.

  • A holistic approach is needed in railway network modernization. What matters is that each route is developed optimally throughout its life to meet business needs - whether the answer at a given point in time is a rail repair or an redevelopment scheme. Modernization of railway network will bring railway systems up-to-date, enabling them to deliver optimal performance. As the result, the railway network modernization for revitalise the railway is based on seeking out optimum conditions for financially efficient infrastructure management, developing infrastructure fully in line with market needs and last but not least, improving railway business.
