In the 1880s, electrified trains were introduced, leading to electrification of tramways and rapid transit systems.
Starting during the 1940s, the non-electrified railways in most countries had their steam locomotives replaced by diesel-electric locomotives, with the process being almost complete by the 2000s.
During the 1960s, electrified high-speed railway systems were introduced in Japan and later in some other countries.
Many countries are in process of replacing diesel locomotives with electric locomotives, mainly due to environmental concerns, a notable example being Switzerland, which has completely electrified its network.
