Portos e Caminhos de Ferro de Mozambique E.P.
Mozambique Ports and Railways or Portos e Caminhos de Ferro de Mocambique (CFM) is the parastatal authority that oversees the railway system of Mozambique and its connected ports. The rail system is composed of a total of 2,983 km rail of the 1,067 mm (3 ft 6 in) gauge that is compatible with neighboring rail systems. In addition there is a 140 km line of 762 mm (2 ft 6 in) gauge.  The railway system developed over more than a century from three different ports at the Indian Ocean that serve as terminals for separate lines to the hinterland. The railroads were major targets during the Mozambican Civil War, were sabotaged by RENAMO, and are being rehabilitated. Management has been largely outsourced. At this time there is no directly interconnecting rail service between the three lines. Each line has its own development corridor.

Maputo, formerly Lourenço Marques, and Matola are the terminals of the Maputo line that links to north eastern part of South Africa. As the Ressano Garcia Railway Company the Maputo line is managed by the NLBP (New Limpopo Bridge Project Investments) together with Transnet Freight Rail and CPM with the aim to rehabilitate and operate the line to the border of South Africa.  In SA the link goes to Komatipoort and further to Johannesburg. The Maputo line has also links to Swazi Rail and the National Railways of Zimbabwe.Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozambique_Ports_and_Railways
