Total Border Coverage by Country



GEOGRAPHY | FIXED DATA

Ranking the total railway (train) coverage by country, from highest to lowest.



Railway Coverage provides for vital tactical flexibility, serving both wartime and peacetime industry. In the event of Total War, railways are crucial to mobilization of military elements. The network also provides needed access to strategic areas, movement of very-heavy equipment and supplies, and showcases infrastructure maturity of a given nation.

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