EuskoTren (Eusko Trenbideak / Ferrocarriles Vascos – Basque Railways) is a railway company which operates trains on part of the 1,000 mm (3 ft 3+38 in) (metre gauge) railway network in the Basque Country, Spain. The other part is run by FEVE. EuskoTren is owned by the Basque Government. The company's operations are centered on San Sebastián and Bilbao. In 1995 a section of the railway and its personnel were transferred to Line One of Metro Bilbao.
