Please use these application forms for all new access contracts, to modify existing access contracts and for new tracking contracts. Under the Railways Act 1993, we have the authority to grant general authorizations and those relevant to railway access and connection contracts are also mentioned here. The SoAR Group must authorise all our sales of access rights prior to a sectoral consultation and the agreed access contract to the railway must be submitted to the Railway and Road Authority (ORR) for approval. It must also approve our response to the ORR with respect to the disputed requests. In some cases, derogations apply, which lift the requirement for a specific authorisation for agreed and controversial sales. A consolidated (or compliant) agreement is a document containing all approved amendments to the existing approved agreement. True copy published from 30 June 2020 until the 135th amendment This page contains the standard application forms and standard contracts that can be used when requesting access to the Rail Network infrastructure or connection to the network. A number of resources are available for customers who are expanding their rail business: see our Operator Information page and our rail freight sites. We do not endorse these consolidated agreements, they are only made available by Network Rail for reference purposes in order to give an overview of the current contractual conditions. Our SoAR (Sale of Access Rights) panel provides network-wide control of the process of negotiating and agreeing to sell access to train operators. The main task of the SoAR panel is to ensure that we apply, where appropriate, a consistent approach across the network and that we exploit the overall capacity optimally and at an acceptable level of performance. A complete list of the consolidated agreements we have with our existing clients can be found on the ORR website.
