In recent years, according to the National Medium and Long-term Railway Network Plan, Yunnan province ranks second in the country in terms of increased railway mileage. In the newly published version of this plan, the building of many railways now involve Yunnan province. In particular, the plan identifies Kunming as a modern railway hub featuring nineteen supporting systems with one-stop services and the development of an integrated station-city strategy.

Yunnan has been accelerating the building of its railway network. In the first half of 2018, the province invested 12.529 billion yuan in such work. This total accounts for 52.3 percent of the annual investment plan. Investment increased by 2.343 billion yuan over the same period last year, a rise of 23 percent year-on-year.

The Dali-Ruili Railway is an important part of the China-Myanmar Railway scheme. It is 330 kilometres long and starts from the city of Dali.Trains call at Yangbi, Yongping, Baoshan, Shidian, Longling and Mangshi before terminating in Ruili on the China-Myanmar border. When the line goes into operation, one can travel from Kunming to Ruili by train in six hours.
