Rail gauge in Slovakia. The track gauge for most lines in Slovakia is the international standard gauge of 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 12 in).

Russian gauge – 1520 mm

Two lines connecting to Ukraine are "Russian broad gauge", 1,520 mm (4 ft 11 2732 in):

On 25 November 2008, a tripartite memorandum of understanding was signed between Russia, Ukraine, and Slovakia on the construction of a broad-gauge line to the Austrian border. On 30 April 2009, Austrian chancellor Werner Faymann announced that his government politically supports the construction of a broad-gauge line from the Austro-Slovak border to Vienna. In November 2010, the Slovak Prime Minister Iveta Radičová announced the Slovak government will not support the project, as it threatens the Slovak workplaces in the Dobrá bulk terminal, which would be unnecessary after the completion of the project.[1]

Metre gauge – 1000 mm

Bosnian gauge – 760 mm
