There are two kinds of competition in this industry; intermodal competition among different transport modes and intramodal competition among different railway operators. Both kinds of competition are strongly affected by economic policy. The project is researching answers to following questions: Is it reasonable policy to promote competition among railway operators when there is already strong competition among road and rail transport? What is result of ungregulated development of railwy markets; competition or monopoly? What kind of reforms is more successful in practise, reforms aimed at vertical unbundling or ones aimed at demonopolization and privatization? The general economic theory will be applied to real railway markets with prefernece to EU countries.
