How many millimeters are the standard rail gauge of China's railway?

China is mostly 1435 millimeters, and there are some 1067 narrow tracks in Yunnan. Long ago, the railway gauge of various countries was different, narrowed to 610 millimeter, 762 millimeter, 891 millimeter, medium 1000 millimeter, 1067 millimeter, 1372 millimeter, 1435 millimeter, and even 1524 millimeter, 1880 millimeter, 2141 millimeter. 

In 1937, the International Railway Association stipulated that the gauge of 1435 millimeters is a standard gauge of international standard. The gauge over 1520 millimeters is a wide rail, and the gauge below 1067 millimeters is a narrow gauge. Nowadays, although most countries adopt 1435 mm gauge, there are still more than 30 different gauge.
