Train in blowing snow

Around the Earth ten times a day

More than 190 million passengers and 100 million tons of freight travelled on our 5,000 kilometre long network in 2021. 67 railway undertakings have covered a total of 157 million train kilometres on our railway network. That equals 3,900 circuits of the Earth in one year.
