The Nijmegen–Venlo railway, also called Maaslijn, is a railway line in the Netherlands running from Nijmegen to Venlo, passing through Boxmeer and Venray. The line was opened in 1883. Between 2006 and 2016, passenger transport on the line was exploited by Veolia. From 2016 to 2031, Arriva will provide train services on the line.


The line is planned to be electrified in 2020. Once this is completed it is planned to operate additional fast services along the line.
