Map of Ramadi

Ramadi is situated along the rail line from Baghdad, however there has been no passenger service running for at least a decade. In 2018 trains started operating to nearby Fallujah again, raising hopes that passenger services will be extended to Ramadi in the near future. The defunct 1 Ramadi railway station is located south of the city.
