A sketchmap of the AFK.
This is a sketchmap rather than a scale map.
In simple terms the AFK and the connecting CFS provide a north-south crossing of Marronĝaco province running between Relforka Lacono and Krelm. The companies' names, the Complemetary Railways of Altonia and the Secondary Railways of Calviero, indicate their relatively late genesis and their local significance in infilling the areas left without railway communication between the SG company's lines.

The AFK runs northwards from its junction with the national SG system at Relforka, in the southwest, and terminates at Fenditavalat, which is actually in Calviero, the adjacent canton. Here the line connects with the Calviero Secundaj Ferovojoj, which is electrified on the three phase system and completes the journey across Calviero canton. A further NG connection, the MFR, runs southwards from Relforka dropping down to the coast of Rolnth, the canton to the west of Altonia.
 In the first stage of its journey the AFK crosses the coastal plateau and then enters the Ero gorge before emerging at Breĉo de Glissent. It then crosses the fertile Kasatritikakamparoj before leaving the valley floor to reach Lacono, the cantonal and provincial capital. The line begins to climb into the mountains as it approaches Urteno, a spa town which is an important source of traffic for the AFK. After Urteno the Vuplafaŭkanagulo carries the line into the Altingablecaŭtoj, the High Reaches of the Marronĝaco Massif. The Vuplafaŭkanagulo is a notorious gradient that requires the use of bankers for heavy trains. Once the line has climbed onto the shoulders of the mountains it crosses the Helcaraxë, a sub-arctic plateau, before crossing the cantonal boundary and dropping down to Fenditavalat. As Vallisfissura this was the Roman capital of Murranaccia province but the more accessible Lacono assumed the provincial capital role in the late nineteenth century.

The AFK has two branches that leave the mainline. That to Eromarbordo connects the ancient port with the rest of the province. This was the start of the via murranaccia, the Roman road that crossed the province and today forms the basis of the RN 424. The other line uses the Strub rack to branch away into the Tegmentadelamondo to reach remote Jakarutu, a strategically significant fortified town set on the heights overlooking the adjacent Lelladino valley.
