Railway vehicle : Mobile equipment running exclusively on rails, moving either under its own power (locomotives and railcars) or hauled by another vehicle (coaches, railcar trailers, vans and wagons).
The following vehicles are included in the statistics for a principal railway enterprise:
(a) All railway vehicles belonging to the principal railway enterprise and hired by it and actually at its disposal, including those under or waiting for repair, or stored in working or non-working order, and foreign vehicles at the disposal of the system and vehicles of the enterprise temporarily engaged in the normal course of running abroad, or upon secondary railway enterprises’ network.
(b) Private owners’ wagons, i.e. those not belonging to the principal railway enterprise but registered on it and authorized to run on it under specified conditions, together with wagons hired out by the railway enterprise to private persons and being operated as private owners’ wagons.
Statistics for a principal railway enterprise exclude vehicles not at its disposal, i.e.
(a) Foreign or secondary railway enterprise vehicles temporarily on railway lines of the principal railway enterprise in the normal course of running.
(b) Vehicles which are on hire to, or otherwise at the disposal of, other railway enterprises
(c) Vehicles reserved exclusively for service transport, or intended for sale, breaking-up or condemning.

Locomotive : Railway vehicle equipped with prime mover and motor or with motor only used for hauling railway vehicles.
Only vehicles with a power of 110 kW and above at the draw hook are classed as locomotives; vehicles with less power being described as “light rail motor tractors” are excluded. Light rail motor tractor is low power tractive unit used for shunting or for work trains and short-distance or low-tonnage terminal services. The special non-passenger tractive units for high speed trains are included, even when these vehicles are part of an indivisible set.

Steam locomotive : Locomotive, whether cylinder or turbine driven, in which the source of power is steam irrespective of the type of fuel used.

Electric locomotive : Locomotive with one or more electric motors, deriving current primarily from overhead wires or conductor rails or from accumulators carried on the locomotive. A locomotive so equipped which has also an engine (diesel or other) to supply current to the electric motor when it cannot be obtained from an overhead wire or from a conductor rail is classed as an electric locomotive.

Diesel locomotive : Locomotive, the main source of power of which is a diesel engine, irrespective of the type of transmission installed. However, diesel-electric locomotives equipped to derive power from an overhead wire or from a conductor rail are classed as electric locomotives.
