Total length of railway lines - Products Datasets

Dataset Details

Total length of railway lines

The collection is based on data from the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe / International Transport Forum / Eurostat Common Questionnaire for Inland Transport Statistics. The Common Questionnaire is not supported by a legal act, but is based on a gentlemen's agreement with the participating countries. Data displayed in this table cover the length of railway lines, whether electrified or not, on the territory of the reporting country. Railway lines are defined as a line of communication made up by rail exclusively for the use of railway vehicles. They consist of one or more adjacent running tracks forming a route between two points. Where a section of network comprises two or more lines running alongside one another, there are as many lines as routes to which tracks are allotted exclusively.
