The chapter reviews the wide variety of organizational and regulatory structures for the rail industry to provide evidence on what approaches to competition and regulation work best and in what circumstances. It then considers research on the specific issues of vertical separation, open access competition for freight and passenger traffic, franchising for freight and passenger traffic, and regulation and infrastructure charges.
