The scope of the survey
The survey encompasses all commercial rail traffic with a few exceptions, such as the heritage railway traffic and traffic in industrial areas. For reasons of confidentiality, very little information is reported per company or per line; summaries are instead given for the entire country.
Rail Traffic Accidents is published electronically once a year, in June. The last six years are covered in pdf format. The Excel version is suitable for independent processing, and it also includes an extended history that dates back, at most, to 2000. Click on the plus sign above the first year to see more.
