The Kunming–Yuxi railway or Kunyu railway (simplified Chinese: 昆玉铁路; traditional Chinese: 昆玉鐵路; pinyin: kūnyù tiělù), is a single-track railroad in Yunnan Province of Southwest China. The line runs 55.5 km (34 mi) from Kunming to Yuxi and was built from 1989 to 1993.[1][2] Bridges and tunnels account for 22% of the total length of the line.[1]

As the Yuxi–Mengzi railway and Mengzi–Hekou railway were constructed in the 21st century, the Kunming–Yuxi railway became the first section of the Kunming–Yuxi–Hekou railway, the modern standard-gauge replacement for the old narrow-gauge Kunming–Hekou railway.

The major upgrade project of Kunming–Yuxi railway is started in 2010, and completed in 2016. The EMU train entered to operation from December 29, 2016.[3]
