#### Definitions

• Broad gauge: This entry states the total route length of the railway network and of its component parts by gauge: broad, dual, narrow, standard, and other.
• Goods transported > Million ton-km: Goods transported by railway are the volume of goods transported by railway, measured in metric tons times kilometers traveled."
• Narrow gauge: This entry states the total route length of the railway network and of its component parts by gauge: broad, dual, narrow, standard, and other.
