All rail routes between this pair of countries are 1520mm gauge.

(Kazlų-Rūda -) Kybartai LG - Chernyshevskoye RŽD (- Chernyakhovsk)

[E] RŽD worked passenger and freight to Kybartai in July 2013, though these arrangements have been known in previous years to take place at Nesterov. A new Russian border station at Chernyshevskoye, immediately on the Russian side of the frontier, was commissioned on 2 October 2017, having been under construction since 2005. Border formalities were previously undertaken at Nesterov, 10 km west.

It is a curiosity that until 1918 eastbound trains entered the Russian Empire at this border, but since 1990 one travels westwards over the same border to enter Russian territory. Until 1945, Chernyshevskoye was Eydtkuhnen, the easternmost station in the former German Empire. This line is planned to be electrified by 2021.

(Radviliškis -) Pagėgiai LG - Sovetsk RŽD
