The Enderloop Company Group (EDL) is Endertopias' national state-owned railway company. Founded in 1933, it operates the vast majority of the country's rail traffic, including the high-speed service SLN. Enderloop also operates freight traffic through its subsidiaries Enderhauler, and maintains the national railway network. The Endertopian railway network has approximately 26,000 km of track, of which 1,800 km are high speed lines and 22,000 km electrified.
In 1933, the government unified and nationalized 3 rail operators of the time and form the Endertopian Railway. Various subsidiaries were formed in the following years. In 1966, it was renamed to Enderloop Company and the government released 49% of its share to the public sector. As of now, the federal government owns roughly 72% of the company.
Enderloop accounts for 92% of all Endertopian rail traffic. There are 15 lines in total, including one high speed line. The Enderloop network is built in the standard gauge, with the exception of the Josen Mountain Line, which is in the narrow gauge.
