The state border–Lendava railway is a 5.216-kilometre (3.241 mi) long railway line in and Slovenia that connects the Croatian L101 railway, linking Čakovec and Lendava[maps 1] with each other and is connected to further railway lines in Čakovec. The route is non-electrified and single-tracked.[1][2] The route was built in 1889 as Zalaegerszeg-Čakovec railway, but in 1945, after World War II, the route was dismantled between Lendava and Rédics. Slovenian Railways plans to rebuild the section between Lendava and Rédics.[3]
