Thanks for sharing, nice videos there and some interesting looking locos that I haven't seen before. Some observations: track seems very well maintained with concrete sleepers and well profiled ballast, and overhead in good condition. Couplings all appear to be automatic, in contrast with much of Europe; no doubt due to the Soviet influence. Some impressively long trains, both passenger and freight.

 

What is the meaning of the illuminated "E" in the third video?

Thank You for a comment. About letter "E". It means that the train is arriving to the electrified track :)

Looks like nice videos. I will spend some time later watching them. May I share some in a Swedish Railway Forum ("Nordpilen")? There are Baltic Railway fans also on my side of the Baltic Sea!

10 points. It is the Haapsalu railway (Estonia). The picture is taken in Riisipere in 2004. The railway is gone and the line has been converted into a bicycle track.

Thanks for the videos. Those EMUs in the second last clip remind me of the Czech 'City Elefant' trains.

Latvian railways (LDz) freight diesel locomotive 2M62U-0111 with a freight train passes through Iecava station, Latvia 

 

I'm curious...are railways in the Baltics doing anything about the diesel engines in these ex-Soviet locos? Because they have a reputation of being real fuel-guzzlers and require near-permanent maintenance...

Dear Nick,

 

Thank You for this question. Unfortunatly meaning Lithuanian railways, we are modernizing these SSSR diesel locomotives. In our 2M62s Caterpillar engines were placed. We have bought new siemens eurorunners ER20CFs. Old 2M62s with original engines that came from factories are being scraped. Some videos will be attached below. Concerning Latvian railways, they still have these old original 2M62 locomotives. They are still in use and will be some years more, I just heard that they also will modernise them with Caterpillar engines.

These are with Caterpillar engines.
