Latvia - Lines with Obscure or Sparse passenger services

From EGTRE

Introduction

This list is based on the timetable which came into force on 9 December 2018. 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.

Obscure services

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.
