Issues for passenger rail rolling stock market investigation

Statement of issues (8 pages, PDF) published by the Competition Commission as part of its inquiry into the leasing and maintenance of rolling stock for passenger rail franchises.

The section headed “indicators of the extent of competition” focuses on prices and profitability, not on the process by which lessors might compete; but substitutability and barriers to new entry are mentioned in earlier sections of the document.
