Assam is the largest and the most conveniently accessible state in the north east states. Railways first enter in Assam in 1881 when Assam Railway & Trading Company set up the meter gauge track.
The track was mainly constructed for tea and coal transportation. In January 1958, two railway networks were formed, the North Eastern Railway and the Northeast Frontier Railway. The railway route length in Assam is approximately 2434 km long.

Assam is well linked through Rail Services to major Indian cities. One can conveniently avail trains from metropolitan cities like from Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and other cities in the country. The railhead of the state is in the capital city Guwahati and has direct train services from major cities in India. The Rajdhani Express from New Delhi and Saraighat Express from Howrah in Kolkata are the fastest trains to Assam. Railways are the easiest and cheapest way to travel to and within Assam.

The Railways Ministry has carried out various developmental actions in the State's Railway including extension of rail line to connect with the other Northeast states of Meghalaya, Mizoram and Arunachal Pradesh through Assam. A few new passenger trains were introduced to connect various places within the state during the last few years.
