The first railway lines in Albania were military and mineral narrow gauge lines, built between the years 1917 and 1930 by Austro-Hungarians and Italians. The rail network extends from the Port of Durres, on the Adriatic sea, and runs in three directions: north to the Albania-Montenegro border at Hani Hotit, south to Ballshi and the Port of Vlora, and east to Pogradec, near the Macedonian border. The rail covers the more populated residential and industrial areas.

The Albanian Railways were built during the period of centrally planned economy, where the government placed very strong restrictions on other modes of transportation. Car ownership was banned and, on roads parallel to the railway, bus traffic and freight movements over 11 km were prohibited.With the political and economic changes of the 1990’s the country’s transportation requirements have changed dramatically. There has been a rapid growth of private trucking and bus services and especially of private cars that have diverted the traffic from the railway. Many state owned factories and mines have closed, reducing seriously the railway traffic.
