There are no railways on Guam. Two derelict Japanese railway locomotives were photographed at the Orote Peninsula Airfield towards the end of World War II; they are known to have been used as cover for troop landings by US forces, but it is not clear whether they previously operated on the island or were shipped in specially for the operation. No railways are shown on contemporary maps of the island.
