Introduction to railway industry in Germany

German rail history began with the opening of the steam-hauled Bavarian Ludwig Railway between Nuremberg and Fürth on 7 December 1835. On 3 October 1990 when Germany was reunified a decision was made to completely re-organise and reconnect Germany's railways. On 1 January 1994 the State railways Deutsche Bundesbahn and Deutsche Reichsbahn were formally reunited to form the current German Railway Corporation (Deutsche Bahn). Total rail length is 41 315 km and the track gauge is 1435 mm.
