Random information on the term “Rail vehicle”:
A railway has two major components: the infrastructure (the permanent way, tracks, stations, freight facilities, viaducts, tunnels, etc.) and the rolling stock (the locomotives, passenger coaches, freight cars, etc.)
The operation of the railway is through a system of control, originally by mechanical means, but nowadays more usually electronic and computerized.
Signalling systems used to control the movement of traffic may be either of fixed block or moving block variety.
Most blocks are ‘fixed’ blocks, i.e. they delineate a section of track between two defined points. On timetable, train order, and token-based systems, blocks usually start and end at selected stations. On signalling-based systems, blocks usually start and end at signals. Alternatively, cab signalling may be in use.
The lengths of blocks are designed to allow trains to operate as frequently as necessary. A lightly used branch line might have blocks many kilometres long, whilst a busy commuter railway might have blocks a few hundred metres long.
