Network Rail’s 2019-2024 Strategic Business Plan for the Wales route states that it operates and maintains 1,487 track miles of railway in Wales and the Border counties of England. It also states that the route includes 1,150 level crossings.

It gives a figure of 246 stations on the route, but these are not managed directly by Network Rail, and are instead the responsibility of train operating companies.
