China Railway or CR, full name China Railway Corporation is the national railway operator of the People's Republic of China, under the regulation of the Ministry of Transport and the National Railway 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, Prosecutors Office and court system,  However, the police department of the railway still under the control of the company, although the status of the police is civil service of Ministry of Public Security, they are still paid and managed by the company. Some critics say the company turns these police into its own security guard and violates the law.

Services to Europe (New Silk Route)
|This section needs expansion. You can help by adding to it. (January 2017)|
As of 2017[update] China Railway ran goods services to 15 European cities, including routes to Madrid and Hamburg and the experimental East Wind service to London to test demand. The Chinese government refers to the two-week 12,000 km route, starting at Yiwu and with trains to London traversing Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Germany, Belgium and France, as the New Silk Route. Containers must be transferred several times, as different, incompatible, rail gauges are used in different regions, and the same rolling stock cannot be used throughout.
China has been investing in and helping to rebuild railways in Africa. Below is an incomplete list of rail projects.
