Cities served by rail
This line is 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in) gauge and carries about 12 million tonnes per annum.
This line is 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 3⁄8 in) gauge and heads off in a northwestern direction.
Central Trans-Guinean Railway
This line is 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 3⁄8 in) gauge. Conversion to 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in) gauge has been proposed. Rejuvenation of this line will be paid for by allow Simandou North iron ore to be exported to a more close by port in Liberia.
- Conakry - capital and port.
- Mambia - bauxite mine
- Kindia - provincial capital.
- Kouyeya - waystation
- Sougeta - waystation
- Konkouré - several km north of railway
- Mamou - provincial capital
- Diagouré - proposed junction
- Dabola - junction and break of gauge
- Kouroussa - bridge over Niger River
- Kankan terminus and provincial capital.
This line is 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in).
South Western line
This line is 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in) and parallels the Southern line.
South Trans-Guinean Railways (Proposed)
The heavy duty Transguinean Railways is about 670 km long and would be 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in) standard gauge. It goes from iron ore mines in the south east and bauxite mines in the north to a new port at Matakong. The link may be double track. This project has been delayed by a coup. In 2001, this line was estimated to cost $3,000m. The line includes 21 km of tunnels which might mean one tunnel 21 km long, or 21 tunnels each 1 km long.
Proposed Guinea - Liberia Railway
(This line would be heavy duty 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in) gauge)
- Zogota iron ore 
- Simandou (north) - iron ore deposit near Diéké 
- Didia. new port owned by BSG Resources.
Proposed Mali railway
- Conference 
- Vale commences to relay derilect railway from Conakry to Kankan. This billion dollar project might be the opportunity to introduce gauge conversion to standard gauge.
- Guinea and Liberia agree to build transborder railway for iron ore traffic. This railway would be shorter and cheaper than a railway entirely within Guinea territory. As part of the deal, the narrow gauge Trans-Guinean railway would be renovated.
