This is how the train path price determining components are linked to produce the ﬁnal train path price: The distance-dependent basic price of the route category is multiplied by the product factor of the selected train path product. The resulting price may be supplemented by a performance-based component. Finally, other possible price components are taken into account when calculating the train path price. These can have a multiplicative or an additive effect.
