- The railway network provides transport services for clients, it is very important for railway managers to analyzing the spatial structure of the network. This article analyzes the spatial structure of Chinese railway network with indicators of degree distribution, the clustering coefficient, the average path length and centralization. According to the definition of the small world network, the results illustrate that Chinese railway passenger network shows the characteristic of a small world network and is evolving to a scale-free network. What's more, the top level of the network has been formed.
