The concept of hybrid drive trains was first developed for automobiles. These drive trains allow achieving a minimum fuel consumption by properly matching the driving requirements and the engine characteristics.
In this paper the authors analyze the possibility of extending this concept to railway vehicles. Basic hybrid railway vehicles are designed and discussed.
