Railway Projects for Transportation Engineering Students

Hi, i am a student studying in railway engineering field. I need ideas for a project that involves element of design and analysis. It has to be railway industrial relevant. Please share you ideas  ? 

Railways own a huge area of land open to sky. If the track is covered with solar PV canopy,  there is potential to harvest a huge amount of solar power, which can be used to run the trains.

Maybe this can be investigated.

Can you also work on something which will identify any faulty rail ,and notifying the near by stations so that we can avoid accidents.
