The fundamental focus of this paper is on theoretical and empirical analysis of selected aspects of functioning of rail traffic in European countries. The principal benefits and drawbacks of rail transport were emphasized. Analysis of rail transport concerned two stages. The first stage was used to illustrate the degree of development of line infrastructure of rail transport in the EU member states (including rail lines adapted to rail modes of transport that reach the speeds of 250kmph. Further, the index of concentration of rail transport was evaluated in individual member states. The computation was based on the data concerning the length of rail lines and transport performance in modes of rail transport. Empirical examinations were carried out based on the statistical data published by the European Statistical Office and the Office of Rail Transport. Period of the study was the years 2009-2012
