Rail stations are evolving from a traditional transit facility to a facility offering leisure and entertainment services. Some of the services offered by rail transportation companies include automated ticketing, helipads and facilities with ergonomic design. Rail stations also serve as a crucial link between commercial, leisure and residential spaces, and are thus redeveloped to generate additional revenues for rail operators. For instance, in 2017, the redevelopment of Darlington station was announced in the UK. The new station is expected to have 98,500 square meters of commercial space providing over 3,000 direct and indirect jobs, and additional revenues to its operators. These redeveloped stations will offer digital signage, escalators and elevators, self-ticketing counters, executive lounges, luggage screening machines, walkways and holding areas for passengers.

According to The Business Research Company’s Consultant, Nitin Gianchandani, rail transportation companies are using alternative energy sources to operate their rolling stock and stations. Alternatives for diesel include hydrogen and LNG (already being tested by some rail operators) that can be used to power trains. The use of alternative energy sources is primarily driven by growing environmental concerns due to climate change and rising fears of energy security. For instance, The Netherlands’ national railway company Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS) and electricity company. Eneco is running all its trains on wind energy, since January 2017.
