November 2007 | Heidi Holland-Nell, Jörg Demitz, Thomas Ginzel

The Railway Operation Laboratory (EBL) of the “Friedrich List” Faculty of Transportation and Traffic Sciences at the Technische Universität Dresden is one of the most modern railway laboratories in Europe. The requirements resulting from scientific studies and actual railway operations practice today present a constant challenge to the ability of a laboratory to create and investigate new products and processes. Only laboratories which consistently find innovative solutions can successfully fulfil these requirements and develop completely new possibilities for basic and further training and research.
