Encyclopedia > List of railway companies

( a new company in Bangladesh is rising M G Mustafa & Co for Railway Trade, Power Trade and Port Machinery www.mgmnco.com ) Note also that in some countries, the railway operating bodies are not companies, but are government departments or authorities.


Historically in some countries, over a period of time, it has gone from Railway Company, then Nationalised to Government Railways, then reverted to Railway Company as operators of the railways. Nationalization is the act of taking assets into state ownership. ...


Particularly in Europe, with privatisations in the 1980s and the separation of the track ownership and management from running the trains, there are now many track-only companies and train-only companies.
