The Sittang Valley State Railway, a 267 km long line along the Sittaung River from Yangon via Bago to Taungoo, opened in 1884. Following the 1885 Anglo-Burma War the Taungoo Line was expanded to Mandalay, the former capitol, after the Anglo-Burma War.
After the opening of this section, the Mu Valley State railroad was founded and work began on the building of a railroad line from Sagaing to Myitkyina, connecting Mandalay with Shwebo in 1891, with Wountho in 1893, with Katha in 1895 and with Myitkyina in 1898.

As a rule, the grid goes from east to southward with junctions to the west and northeast. There are 200 train services and 150,000 train passes sold every day. Most freight locomotives on routes without significant inclines run without train braking, as most operational carriages are cannibalized and no longer have suction-hose.
Freight train loads up to 600 tons are only slowed down by the engine and travel at a top velocity of 32 km/h (19.9 mph). When the train is particularly heavier, the front carriages are equipped with tubes for the entire journey. A new light from Myanmar.
