Border Crossings: Lithuania - Russia

Jump to navigationJump to search

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

(Kazlų-Rūda -) Kybartai LG - Nesterov 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. 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. A substantial but totally disused border station exists at Chernyshevskoye immediately on the Russian side of the frontier, all border formalities being handled at Nesterov. Up to 1945, this was Eydtkuhnen, the easternmost station in the former German Empire. This line is planned to be electrified by 2021.

(Radviliškis -) Pagėgiai LG - Sovetsk RŽD

[D] Freight only. One train a day each way uses this crossing. LG works to Sovetsk.
