History Of Myanma Railways

 

Rail transport was first introduced in Myanmar in May 1877 when Lower Burma was a British colony with the opening of the 163-mile (262 km) Yangon to Pyay line by The Irrawaddy Valley State Railway. 
In 1884, a new company, The Sittang Valley State Railway, opened a 166-mile (267 km) line along the Sittaung River from Yangon to the town of Taungoo via Bago.
After the annexation of Upper Burma following the Third Anglo-Burmese War of 1885, the British extended the Taungoo line to Mandalay, the fallen capital, by 1889.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Following the opening of this section, the Mu Valley State Railway was formed and construction began on a railway line from Mandalay to Myitkyina in 1898. Mandalay to Lashio and Thazi to Shwe Nyaung.
The railway's reach to the Taninthayi coast first came in 1907 with the opening of the Bago-Ye line. 
After Myanmar gained independence from the UK in 1948, the rail network was rebuilt. By 1961 the network extended to 3,020 km (1,877 mi).
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
In 1884, a new company, The Sittang Valley State Railway, opened a 28.0-mile (45.9 km) line along the Yangon sub urban, known as Yangon circular line. In 1961, Yangon circular line up grade to double track.
In 1951, Yangon to Pyinmana rail line was up graded to double track and in 2008, Yangon to Mandalay rail line was up graded to double track.
The first phase of the overall project of Muse-Lashio-Kyaukphyu is from Muse to Lashio in Shan state  which stretches as 126 kilometers with 41 big and small bridges, 36 tunnels and seven railway stations to be added along the  route.
