Résumé : This article proposes an analysis of recent developments of the railway sector - mainly passenger transport - in the European Union. It first provides a critical synthesis of the foundations and practical intervention modes of the European legislators. Atypology of the organizational structures appliedinvariousMember States shows the diversity of the reforms undertaken in Europe, among others under the impulse of the common European transport policy. Finally the authors analyse advantages and disadvantages of recent regulatory reforms aimed at introducing in the railway sector a separation between infrastructure and operation of transport services in order to increase competition in transport supply. © 1998 CIRIEC.
