A similar organization will be built also for Passenger Transportation. Thus, locos seem to be splitted for passenger and freight in the near future. With the HST, EMU and DMU sets, the rolling stock has already started to be differentiated in last years.

Which department will manage mixed trains carrying freight and passenger at the same time is not mentioned yet.
