Railways transform and shape the cultural landscape with a large repertoire of interventions. Their influence extends to several areas, including urban, tourism and economic development. This influence is so pervasive that it could be considered to be an independent phenomenon within the cultural landscape. In here, it could be characterised as a relationship between infrastructure and landscape which define its spatial boundaries. Various research approaches have been developed to analyze railroad landscapes, with the field of cultural landscape research offering particularly sound research methodologies. These are suitable for capturing several railway elements and their cultural and historical value. The focus of this Masters work is not on the railway elements per se, but on the spaces they produce. The emphasis is laid on the interaction between infrastructure and landscape, the typology of these influences and their representation. To this end, graphical analytic tools are introduced, which were developed through studying the abandoned track Uskoplje-Gruž (Bosnia/Croatia). The method consists of field work, evaluation of map sources, as well as analysis of the historic developement. The tools open up a potential of interpretations which is offered by the spatial analysis. The complexity of representation is reduced and the individual topics are examined separately. Consequently, the thesis demonstrates a way of systematically investigating the introduction of the railway into the landscape and to characterize its spatial qualities.
