Three quarters of the Switzerland rail network is at standard gauge, comprising 3,652 km, administered mostly by two companies as its shown in Switzerland rail map. Important railway stations are the Zürich Hauptbahnhof, the Basel SBB railway station and the Bern railway station. SBB-CFF-FFS (Swiss Federal Railways) is the largest railway company in Switzerland and handles the majority of national and international traffic. It operates the main east-west track in the central valley area and the north-south routes through the Alps via the Gotthard tunnel (Lugano to Zurich line) and the Simplon tunnel (Domodossola to Lausanne-Bern-Geneva line). Total route length: 3,000 km. BLS (Bern-Lötschberg-Simplon) is the other main company, with 10% of the standard gauge network. It manages the other major Alpine route Bern-Brig via the Lötschberg tunnel and connection at Brig with SBB Simplon tunnel to Italy. Total route length: 345 km.

The Rhaetian Railway (RhB) is the longest metre gauge railway in Switzerland, linking Disentis, Davos and St. Moritz in the high Alps with Chur, a rail junction with the SBB as its mentioned in Switzerland rail map. It passes through the upper Rhine Valley and several side valleys, as well as the Engadin, the upper valley of the Inn River. The Bernina Pass is the highest point on this line, at 2253 m. Total length: 366 kilometres. The Furka-Oberalp-Bahn (FO) is a metre gauge railway in the high southern alps. Its name refers to two passes, the Furka Pass and the Oberalp Pass. The Furka pass lies at the upper end of the Rhone valley. The Oberalppass is the highest point on this line at 2033 metres, and lies at the upper end of the Rhine valley. The total length of the railway is 100 kilometres, and the line runs from Disentis to Brig. Brig is a rail junction with the SBB and BLS and sits at the north end of the Simplon tunnel on the Milan to Lausanne SBB line and Milan to Bern BLS line.
