MR - Rail Services

There are 960 active railway stations in Myanmar with Yangon Central and Mandalay Central as the twin anchors of the network. Recently, rail service has been extended along the Taninthayi coast to Mon State and Tanintharyi Region with Mawlamyine station as the southern hub. The railway lines generally run north to south with branches to the east and the west. Most of the routes are single track although large parts of Yangon-Pyay and Yangon-Mandalay routes are double track.
