The data was released a few months ago in conjunction with their real-time
datafeeds platform (http://datafeeds.networkrail.co.uk/ if anyone is
interested).  That is covered under the T&Cs at
http://www.networkrail.co.uk/data-feeds/terms-and-conditions/, but
separately I've also asked for explicit clarification that the static data
is under this licence and they're happy for the data to be put in to OSM.

I've also asked if they can provide a vector-based version of the INSPIRE
data they've published - FOI request is at
http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/map_of_the_railway_network.  I
imagine this will be really useful to validate track layouts and fill in
any gaps.
