A railway electrification system supplies electric power to railway trains and trams without an on-board prime mover or local fuel supply. Electric railways use either electric locomotives , electric multiple units (passenger cars with their own motors) or both.
Railway signalling is a system used to direct railway traffic and keep trains clear of each other at all times. Trains move on fixed rails, making them uniquely susceptible to collision.
The world record for a conventional wheeled passenger train is held by France's TGV , set in 2007 when it reached 574.8 km/h (357.2 mph) on a 140 km section of track.Japan's experimental maglev train L0 Series achieved 603 km/h (375 mph) on a 42.8 km magnetic levitation track in 2015.
A coupling is a mechanism used to connect rolling stock in a train. The design of the coupler is standard, and is almost as important as the track gauge, since flexibility and convenience are maximised if all rolling stock can be coupled together.
A railway gun, also called a railroad gun, is a large artillery piece, often surplus naval artillery, mounted on, transported by, and fired from a specially designed railway wagon.

Railway electrification in Great Britain began in the late 19th century. A range of voltages has been used, employing both overhead lines and conductor rails.
The Melbourne rail network is a passenger and freight train system in the city of Melbourne, Australia. It is the core of the larger Victorian railway network, with links to both intrastate and interstate systems.
Railway platform height is the built height – above top of rail – of passenger platforms at stations. A connected term is train floor height, which refers to the ATR height of the floor of rail vehicles.
Rail network in the state of Haryana in India, is covered by 5 rail divisions under 3 rail zones, namely, North Western Railway zone , Northern Railway zone (Delhi railway division and Ambala railway division) and North Central Railway zone (Agra railway division). Diamond Quadrilateral High-speed rail network Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor and Western Dedicated Freight Corridor pass through Haryana.
Rail transport is a means of transferring passengers and goods on wheeled vehicles running on rails, which are located on tracks. In contrast to road transport, where vehicles run on a prepared flat surface, rail vehicles (rolling stock) are directionally guided by the tracks on which they run.
