Length of railway lines operated

The total length of railway lines operated on 31 December was established as the sum of the construction length of standard gauge, narrow gauge and large gauge railway lines (data concerning the length of these lines are included in the length of standard gauge lines) operated on that day. The construction length of railway line is understood as the distance between its extremes measured on single-track lines – along the axis of the track, and on multi-track lines – along the axis of the longest track.

1. Standard gauge railway lines are lines where the tracks have a clearance of 1435 mm
2. Narrow gauge railway lines are lines where the tracks have a ground clearance of less than 1435 mm (e.g. 1000 mm, 785 mm).
3. Broad gauge railway lines are lines where the tracks have clearance greater than 1435 mm. (e.g. 1524 mm).
