Dual gauge tracks - railway (Vietnam)

China uses the world standard 1435 mm gauge, while Vietnam still uses a narrow 1000 mm metric gauge on their old "North-South Reunification Line" (Vietnam has plans to upgrade their North-South line for high-speed train in standard gauge).­

The railway track connecting Hanoi to Beijing has 3 rails to support both gauges between Hanoi and the Chinese border.­
