Freight and passenger traffic are elucidated from a broad range of aspects. Among those are traffic and transport performance, goods quantities and number of journeys. There is also information about infrastructure, such as the total length of track and number of crossings. The companies that traffic the infrastructure are listed, and a summary of their investments in terms of vehicles and personnel is provided.

The scope of the survey

The survey covers all commercial rail traffic, with some exceptions, such as 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.
