The proposed Cagayan-Iligan Corridor Line of the Mindanao Railways project will have main terminals at Linamon and Jasaan. According to the proposal, Express Stations will be put up at Iligan Port, Laguindingan Airport, and Agora Terminal in Cagayan de Oro City. Intermediate stations will be constructed in each municipality along the corridor.

In previous gatherings, Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Constantino Jaraula said the proposed project will construct elevated railways in both Iligan and Cagayan de Oro because of space limitations. In Cagayan de Oro City, from Opol, it will pass beside Westbound (Bulua) Terminal acorss Ayala Property then proceed towards and along the 5th bridge then another elevated railway up to Agora Terminal similar to the MRT/LRT system in Metro Manila.

Trains to be used will be Diesel-Electric Multiple Units with maximum speed of 160 kph, 6-car trains, and seating capacity of 400 passengers. The final feasibility study was submitted last August 10, 2009 and is now under review by DOTC. The following months will have field works focusing on environmental, traffic and geodetic surveys as well as railway planning and engineering studies.
