Whoever wishes to provide railway services needs access to tracks and other rail infrastructure and services. Railway undertakings (RUs) usually need one or more service facilities before and after each train movement..
Freight train stations/terminals/ports
Passenger railway stations
Marshalling yards/train formation facilities/storage siding
Maintenance facilities / other service facilities
The Section "Access to Service Facilities and Services" makes sure that all entities entitled to access obtain non-discriminatory access to these service facilities and associated services (eg loading and unloading of freight wagons, maintenance of rail vehicles). Several hundred infrastructure managers (IMs) are subject to regulation.
