Rīga pasažieru - Vagonu Parks/Vagonnyi Park [- Jāņavārti]
(ERA 251C2, not shown) LV19/1
All-stations electric suburban services in both directions and 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.
