Rail transport is the most commonly used mode of long-distance transportation in the People's Republic of China. Almost all rail operations are handled by the Ministry of Railways, which is part of the State Council of the People's Republic of China. By the end of 2009, the operating rail network traverses the length and breadth of the country, covering a total length of 86,000 km (53,438 mi), making only the rail networks in the United States larger in size . As of 2008, Chinese Railway owned about 584,961 wagons, 43,215 coaches and 18,437 locomotives and ran more than 36,300 trains daily, including about 3000 passenger trains and 33,300 freight trains. The network today serves all provinces, with the exception of the special administrative region of Macau.
