- a rail through which electric current is supplied to an electric locomotive
- facilitate, improve and develop international rail transport services within the European Union and with third countries;
- facilitate, improve and develop international rail transport services within Community territory and with third countries;
- The Committee may discuss any matter relating to the interoperability of the rail system, including questions relating to interoperability between the rail system within the Community and the rail system of third countries.
- The Committee may discuss any matter relating to the interoperability of the trans-European high-speed rail system, including questions relating to interoperability between this system and the rail system of third countries.
- This proposed third step addresses train drivers licensing, quality of service for rail freight transport, passenger rights in international railway transport and market-opening for international passenger transport services by rail.
- for vehicles coming from or going to third countries the track gauge of which is different from that of the main rail network within the Community.
- plants for transforming and carrying electric power for train haulage: sub-stations, supply cables between substations and contact wires, catenaries and supports; third rail with supports,
- The scheme concerns aid for small and medium-sized enterprises and consortia engaged in road haulage on behalf of third parties which carry out combined transport activities or perform rail and overland transport activities in any way connected with combined rail transport or the transport of goods or passengers.
- Any aerials fitted outside the freight wagons shall be completely protected from the voltage of the catenary or third rail and the system shall form an electrical single unit bonded at one single point.
- Furthermore, Siemens takes the view that there is overcapacity in the rail sector as a whole, whereas the other interested third party takes the view that such overcapacity applies only to the rolling stock segment.
- In pursuing these objectives, the Agency shall take full account of the process of enlargement of the European Union and of the specific constraints relating to rail links with third countries.
- By way of derogation from point 1.2.1 and in order to facilitate rail traffic flows of high-speed passenger trains, the Member States on the itinerary of these trains from third countries may also decide, by common agreement with third countries concerned, to carry out entry checks on persons in trains from third countries in either one of the following ways:
- Rolling stock placed in service for the first time in a third country and intended to be used inside the European Union as part of the common 1520 mm rail system wagons fleet shall not be registered in the NVR.
- This competitor, like Siemens, considers that there is over-capacity in the rail transport market. It suggests measures to allow third parties access to intellectual property rights for the high-speed train (TGV) and/or signalling.
- By way of derogation from paragraph 1 above and Article 5 Member States shall authorise the transit by road or by rail through the Community, between designated Community border inspection posts listed in the Annex to Decision 2001/881/EC, of consignments coming from and destined to Russia directly or via another third country provided that the following conditions are met:
