Total Railway Coverage by Country

Railways are critical to military mobilization, industry and tactical flexibility.

OVERVIEW



In terms of warfare and the GFP ranking, Railway Coverage allows for tactical flexibility and serves wartime industry as well as general mobilization. Railways provide access to vital areas of a given nation and may be used to indicate a developed infrastructure. For the purposes of the GFP finalized ranking, the more usable railway coverage the more mature a country's infrastructure.

Usability of railways follows the CIA World Factbook's interpretation. Values below are presented in Kilometers (km).
