The Rwanda Standard Gauge Railway is a railway system, under development, linking the country to the neighboring countries of Tanzania and Uganda.The system is expected to link, in the future, to Rwanda's two other neighbors, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Similarly, standard gauge railways in Canada, the US and Mexico use the janney coupler or the compatible tightlock coupling for locomotive-hauled equipment. Terminology. Terms such as broad gauge and narrow gauge do not have any fixed meaning, although standard gauge is generally known world-wide as being 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1 ⁄ 2 in).
The Gauge Change Train (GCT) or Free Gauge Train (フリーゲージトレイン, "FGT") is the name given to a Japanese project started in 1994 to develop a high-speed train with variable gauge axles to allow inter-running between the 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1 ⁄ 2 in) standard gauge Shinkansen network, and the 1,067 mm (3 ft 6 in) narrow gauge regional rail network.

This gauge, but not the scale, is derived from the standard gauge 'Gauge 1' in UK (originally using a scale of 10mm to 1 foot). The same gauge of 45 mm (1.772 in), if used to represent a 3 ft 6 in (1,067 mm) track, a commonly used Narrow Gauge in many countries i.e. Australia, Africa, corresponds to a scale of 1:24.
