Train paths

A infrastructure capacity – similar to a “slot” in the aviation industry – is an authorisation for travel on a particular section of the rail network for defined periods of time and with a specific train (length, weight, profile, speed). The RU simply submits its order for international freight and passenger transport paths online. Stops at our stations can also be booked for passenger services when ordering train paths.
