Abstract

Using specific science methods and through a model, authors have determinated how investments in the railway infrastructure influence the whole railway system. We have based our research on experience and on results that have been found out in Austria, Argentina, Bolivia, Brasil, Chile and Venezuela. Based on scientific studies about the conditions of the Slovenian railway system, on Methodology for determination of the investment's measures and definition of conditions for a justified realisation and on Calculation of the expected number of freight trains, authors give results that confirm our hypothesis.
