These set of rules and regulations deal with issues relating to traffic and transport on railway and are prepared and owned by the FSV. They are available as a downloadable version and in printed form. Moreover, they are also available on a RVE-subscription basis. But today there aren´t translated RVE, due to that they can be bought single or as a RVE-subscription still only in German.
FSV Dictionary (last from 2018 only in german, in the moment in revision and including particular english translations)
The FSV dictionary includes a collection of terms that are defined in the guidelines and regulations for planning, construction and maintenance of roads (RVS) and railways (RVE). This allows an easier searching of definitions of road- and railway-related terms and greater consistency in the preparation of new or revisions of RVS/RVE guidelines. Existing terms are clearly defined and have not to be redefined further times.
