The line of distinction between this article and the former ones is exactly the usage of the above index which can be used fur measuring changes in efficiency, that is, efficiency under conditions of constant and changeable returns to scale. The average technical efficiency of the Iranian Railways system under CCR condition is equal to 0.590 and BCC condition equals 0.6.
