Network performance in general -and in the computing and telecommunications areas in particular -is a topic of major interest. Much of this research is not in the public domain, but this is beginning to change as international research teams become aware of common problems and issues. In any event, rail systems have certain special characteristics which limit the transferability of general network methods to rail problems or which require additional work to develop relevant interpretations and
