China Railway or CR, full name China Railway Corporation is the national railway operator of the People's Republic of China,[2] under the regulation of the Ministry of Transport and the State Railways Administration. It used to be part of the now defunct Ministry of Railways.

China Railway operates passenger and freight transport via several smaller companies. China Railway previously had its own police force and court system, which was unique among the world's railways.[citation needed]


The original China Railway logo was designed by Chen Yuchang (Chinese: 陈玉昶) (1912-1969), as announced in the People's Daily on 22 January 1950.[3][4]
