History =

First Railways

The first railroad in Pasalia was opened in 1879.

Expansion

Downfall

Recovery

Pasalia's railroad network has improved since the early 2000s. In 2001 the Government gave PNR a fund of 4 billion PSD to significantly improve service until 2011.

Highspeed-Rail Project

The government started to look into the option of highspeed rail during the 1970s. Rising energy prices and negative health effects due to increased road and air travel were the primary drivers for this idea.
