FGC - Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya ("Catalonia Railways Network") is a railway company which operates several unconnected lines in Catalonia.

GEDLux has been working since 2008 in updating its control systems and modernising the substations of its network. The lines operated include metro and commuter lines in and around the city of Barcelona, tourist operated mountain railways, and rural railway lines. They include 3.5 kilometres (2.2 mi) of 600 mm (1 ft 11 5⁄8 in) gauge route, 140 kilometres (87 mi) of 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 3⁄8 in) route, 42 kilometres (26 mi) of standard gauge route, and 89 kilometres (55 mi) of broad gauge route, making the FGC one of the few railway companies to operate on four different gauges. Whilst most lines are conventional adhesion railways, the FGC also operates two rack railways and four funicular railways.
