Latvia - Lines with Obscure or Sparse passenger services
This list is based on the timetable which comes into force on 8 December, 2019.. The LDz internal timetable does not use table numbers. Standard abbreviations are explained in General Information.
Map references for each route entry are given in parentheses ( ). References prefixed "ERA" refer to the European Railway Atlas Baltic States, Belarus & Ukraine, Regional Series 2017, by M.G.Ball.
Rīga pasažieru — Vagonu Parks/Vagonnyi Park (— Jāņavārti)
(ERA-E 114C3, not shown; ERA-R 251C2, not shown) LV21/1
All-stations electric suburban services in both directions, and also a very limited number of longer distance DMU services, deviate from the double track main line and run to the south of carriage sidings and an EMU depot. They use a single track line and call at Vagonu Parks/Vagonnyi Park station. These frequent services run every day and can be easily identified in the Riga - Ogre and Lielvārde timetable.
Jelgava — Meitene — Šarkiai (Lithuania) — Šiauliai
(ERA-E 115A3; ERA-R 253B1-C1) LV21/2
Ukrainian Railways operated a seasonal train between Kiev/Kyiv and Riga. However this was suspended with effect from 15 March 2020, as Latvia cancelled all international travel.
|D1||31||Kiev/Kyiv - 05:51 Šiauliai - Riga Pass|
|D2||32||19:40 Riga Pass - Kiev/Kyiv|
