Railway knowledge class

Railway is the main artery of the national economy. By the end of 2016, China's high-speed rail operation mileage exceeded 22 thousand kilometers, ranking first in the world. By 2020, the national railway network will reach 150,000 kilometers, including 30,000 kilometers of high-speed railway, covering more than 80% of the major cities. At that time, China will build a modern high-speed railway network with "eight vertical and eight horizontal" main corridors as the framework, regional connection lines and inter-city railway supplements.

Railways are classified into national railways, local railways, joint-venture railways and private lines according to their categories. Today, we will tell you how it is divided.


National Railway

The national railway occupies a very important position in the national economy, and is an important infrastructure for national development.

There are many railway grades in the state railway, which are divided into the first class of the state railway, the second level of the national railway and the third level of the national railway. Because the nature of National Railways is very important, the management of National Railways is not only an administrative management, but also a highly centralized and unified transportation management system for national railways.


Local railway

Mainly by local self-investment or joint investment with other railways, to undertake local public passengers, goods short-distance transport tasks of the railway.

Compared with national railways, local railways differ in the change of management subjects. One is the competent department of railways under the State Council and the other is the local people's government. The former represents the country and represents the overall economic interests of the central people's government, while the latter is also a part of the country, it represents the local region. Economic interests.

Railways that are managed by enterprises or other units and provide transport services exclusively for their own enterprises or within their own units. Generally speaking, most of the special railways are built by large and medium-sized enterprises with their own investment and their own locomotives and vehicles, which are used to complete their own transport tasks. Some military enterprises and forest management departments have built some special railways for transport production.


Railway special line

It refers to bifurcated lines managed by enterprises or other units that are in line with national railways or other railway lines. Special railway lines and special railways are built by enterprises or other units mainly to serve the internal transport of their own enterprises.

The use of transport power is the power of the railway that is in line with it.
