A typical rail junction
The Guelphian Railways Corporation manages 23 railway lines and associate infrastructure across the 1,145 miles (1,843 km) network.

Overview

At present, there are six major trunk lines which link the important population centres of the country together. Linking into these lines are the various rural and suburban branch lines which service the countryside and outer suburbs of the big cities. At present there are two suburban rail operators, located in Kingsbury and Port Frederick. An additional service is proposed for Corfe Harbour and is due to go online in the next two years. The network also facilitates freight services from mining and agriculture, allowing for the movement of commodities to ports along the coast. Finally, there is a single privately operated tourist line in the Bielsdown Mountain Railway, which predominantly run steam trains and other historical locomotives.

Trunk lines

There are presently six trunk lines, five on Brunswick Island and one of the Isle of Lunenburg. All trunk lines see both passenger and freight traffic on a daily basis. The lines are built to a grade known as Main Line Standard, which allows high-speed trains to travel along them at speeds of between 100–125 miles per hour (161–201 km/h). The trunk lines are as follows:

Branch lines

In addition to the main lines, there are also a number of branch lines that connect smaller centres to the network. Closed and mothballed lines are marked in italics:
