My brother Felix Schmid

My brother was director of the Masters Programme in Railway Engineering (MSc in Railway Systems Engineering and Integration)  at the University of Birmingham
based at the The Railway Research Centre of the University until his retirement in summer 2020.

As a reknown expert he is still active in the field of railways, is available for consultacy
For the year 2020/21 he was elected Chair for Railway Divison of the (UK based) Institution of MECHANICAL ENGINEERS.

The two of us share an interest in railways. Whilst we both love old fashioned museum railways, the professional interest lies more in the operation of modern mass transport.
