In the rail transportation sector, rolling stock refers to both powered and non-powered railway vehicles, such as locomotives, freight and passenger cars, and non-revenue cars.
Unpowered, self-propelled, single, or numerous units are all possible for passenger vehicles. A train is a group of connected railroad cars.
The phrase rolling stock has been expanded in the United States from the older, more broadly defined trains to encompass wheeled vehicles utilised by corporations on public roads.
The term uses the word stock to refer to an inventory. Rolling stock is seen as a liquid asset, or one that can be easily approximated to be liquid, because the vehicle’s value may be quickly determined and supplied to the buyer without incurring significant costs or delays.
In contrast, fixed stock (infrastructure), which refers to all of the track, signals, stations, additional buildings, electrical lines, etc. needed to run a railway, is a general phrase for all of these items.
