FUNCTIONS AND MANAGEMENT ON THE GERMAN FEDERAL RAILWAY

AUFTRAG UND FUEHRUNG DER DEUTSCHEN BUNDESBAHN

After a historical outline showing the importance of national railways, the author underlines the difficulties arising out of the conflict between the DB Management Board's business administration on the one hand and the socioeconomic role of the German Federal Railway on the other. The difficulties are due mainly to a lack of clarity in the definition of function on the DB. From the outside, the Board appears to have total responsibility and to run the enterprise as a profit making concern, though it is only supposed to hold to the principles of balancing the books, which applies to every railway. The Federal Government and the Board should take rapid steps to define tasks and responsibilities more clearly.
