A summer of innovation with Railway Engineering!

Three years after it was first published and having brought you more than fifty exclusive interviews from around the world (from Latin America to Africa, the Far East to Eastern Europe and Italy), Railway Engineering has set itself the ambitious target of venturing, once and for all, into the world of Web 2.0 and in so doing, get even closer to its readership.

This July edition marks the start of two great new initiatives.

The first is the launch of the www.railwayengineering.it website, an actual portal where our readers will find a summary of the contents of the latest edition and those of previous ones, in a format that is both simple and intuitive.

The new website will be a window onto the world of Railway Engineering, a way of bringing you still closer to us and of taking a look at our content, wherever in the world you may be, even during your business trips.

The second new feature is the launch of a digital version of the magazine. This is yet one more way of keeping up with the times and of ensuring that you will receive your copy of each issue safely and promptly. This will also allow us to make our own small contribution to protecting the environment by reducing the use of paper and fuel.

New issues of our magazine can be downloaded from our website every two months by entering a username and password in the appropriate download area. It will also be possible to save a PDF version of it on your computer or tablet.

In order for you to be able to do this, we will shortly be sending you your unique access details. Enter this information to download your PDF edition of the magazine. You will be informed about the publication of each new issue through our newsletter – which is also something new that we at Railway Engineering have come up with for you – and this will allow you to download it quickly.

Keep the username and password that will be sent to you safe, because you can use them to download all subsequent issues of the magazine. However, please note: being as the contents are reserved specifically for you, our specially selected readers, each edition can only be downloaded once!

So what are you waiting for? To be certain of receiving future digital issues, send your address, if you haven’t already done so, to info@railwayengineering.it, and you’ll receive your personal username and password by return!

In the meantime we’ll leave you in peace to enjoy reading this new July issue, packed full of exclusive interviews: from an in-depth analysis of the issues relating to RFI  procurement of materials for the railway infrastructure, to the latest look at the countries of Latin America, with interviews conducted in Uruguay and Bolivia and finally, to our special feature that describes the activities and plans for an interesting Italian rail network, the Ferrovie del Gargano.

We wish you an enjoyable read and a lovely summer with Railway Engineering.
