Rail infrastructure and assets
Rail infrastructure and asset statistics were previously published alongside rail emissions data within the rail infrastructure, assets and environmental release. For 2018-19, this has been split into two separate publications; rail infrastructure and assets, and rail emissions.
Annual statistics covering average age of rolling stock used by passenger train operating companies and reference data on the mainline infrastructure in Great Britain.
For details on how these statistics are compiled, please see our Rail infrastructure and assets methodology and quality report and for information on any revisions, please see our Revisions Log.
Data and reports that include previous statistical releases on Rail infrastructure, assets & environmental can be found on the National Archives.
