The focus of this paper is put on the accidents consist of train derailments and scenarios that lead to them. It is carried out the qualitative analysis of scenarios that lead to accidents by applying the fault tree analysis (FTA). In the next phase, the quantification of the fault tree is applied. Considering quantified scenarios leads to the chain of events that has the highest probability of realization and which provides insight into the elements of procedure that is in such a chain the weakest link. As a result, there is a possibility of preventive react and to reduce the number of accidents as well as reduce severity of accidents can be realized as the consequences of such events. Research has been conducted on the basis of accidents that occurred on the Serbian railway network, in three-year period, 2012 - 2014. The total number of processed accidents is 1474, of which there were 312 derailments.
