Network Rail is the government-created owner and operator of most of the rail infrastructure in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales).[4] It does not include the other UK state operator, Northern Ireland Railways. Network Rail is a British "not for dividend" entity, technically a private company limited by guarantee, whose principal asset is Network Rail Infrastructure Limited, a company limited by shares.

Network Rail's main customers are the separate and mostly private-sector train operating companies (TOCs), responsible for passenger transport, and freight operating companies (FOCs), who provide train services on the infrastructure that the company owns and maintains. Network Rail does not itself run passenger or freight services; ultimately both Network Rail and the train operating companies have the shared responsibility of delivering train services to the travelling public.
