As of 2013, Bhutan did not have any railways.

Bhutan and India have signed an MOU to connect Bhutan with the Indian Railways network. Further progress was reported in March 2006.[1]

On January 25, 2005, the King and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh agreed to carry out a feasibility study for rail links. Possible routes are Hasimara–Phuentsholing with a branch to Pasaka (18 km); Kokrajhar–Gelephu (70 km); Pathsala–Naglam (40 km); Rangla–Darranga–Samdrupjongkar (60 km); and Banarhat–Samtse.[2]
