FINANCIAL STATISTICS ON EUROPEAN RAILROADS
DONNEES STATISTIQUES PORTANT SUR LA SITUATION FINANCIERE DES CHEMINS DE FER EUROPEENS
Part 1: Financial statistics on European Railroads for 1965-1972 give 1) transport data for passengers, merchandise, global rail transport, transport structure, internal and international rail traffic, international rail transport and for personel productivity; 2) data on the financial state of railroads; 3) government subsidies; 4) investments in railroads by GNP etc. (17 pp. of basic data in the Appendix). Part 2: Continuation of financial statistics on European Railroads for 1973-1974(1975). Part 2 was undertaken because of the great changes that have taken place in the financial conditions of railroads since 1972. It concentrates on transport developments (passengers, merchandise, total), costs and deficits of railroad systems, government subsidies to the railroads, investments in national railroads. It finds that the regression of passenger transport may have been reversed for global passenger traffic, that there is an increase in merchandise traffic, that transport costs will have increased by 300-500% in 10 years, that transport subsidies vary from 62% (Italy) to 10% (Japan), and that railroad investments have remained stationary except for increases in Luxemburg, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. The report concludes that a European solution and cooperation is urgently needed for regulating the financial relations between railroads and governments, for defining public services, for stimulating business cooperation between the European railroad systems and for common European transport policies.
