In 2005, Africa had a total railway network of 3.1 km per 1000 square kilometers. 43% belonged to Southern Africa and 22% belonged to North Africa. Central, Eastern and Western Africa together had a share of only 35%. Excluding island nations, eleven countries in Sub-Saharan Africa had no railway service in 2010. Burundi, Central African Republic, Chad, Equatorial Guinea, the Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Libya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Somalia, and the Niger all have either no railway systems or have abandoned rail service in the country.
