This Special Issue marks the 7th International Rail Human Factors Conference, comprising a selection of papers presented at the conference in June 2021. The aim of this conference was to bring together scientists, consultants, regulators, operators, infrastructure managers, manufacturers and suppliers to share rail human factors knowledge. The conference focus was on the discussion of topical issues such as in-cab signalling, traffic management, non-technical skills, the platform-train interface and safety culture. The papers in this special issue are enhanced versions of a selection of key papers from the conference, covering a range of applications, as well as the development and implementation of theory and methods, that has relevance to both the rail Human Factors community, and to the wider discipline of Human Factors / Ergonomics
