Ungheni CFM - Ungheni Prut CFR - Socola (1520 mm gauge)

(ERA 236C2) MD19/3

The track is dual 1435/1520 mm gauge between Ungheni and Socola marshalling yard on the eastern outskirts of Iaşi. CFM introduced a daily 1520 mm gauge train between Chişinău and Socola on 30 September 2015, since reduced to an extended weekend service. This is the only broad gauge train, but there are other 1435 mm gauge services - see Border_Crossings:_Moldova_-_Romania#Ungheni.

FSSuO 821Ь Chişinău - 08:52 Ungheni - Socola
FSSuO 822Ь 17:42 Socola - Ungheni - Chişinău

Chişinău - Chişinău-3 - Revaca

(ERA 237B1 not shown) MD19/4

Between Chişinău and Revaca there is a section of effectively double track, with the two tracks separated by up to 200 m. The station named Chişinău-3 (also shown on some maps as "S.T.V.C.") has platforms on the two routes, one for each direction, and they are labelled as such. The two routes appear to be worked as conventional "right hand running".

Other Sparse services

The following lines have few trains (relative to service levels generally in this country) – fewer than three trains each way on at least three days a week – or do not run each weekday:

  • Bălţi-Slobozia - Rogojeni
  • Basarabeasca - Zloți
  • Bender-3 - Tiraspol - Kuchurhan (Ukraine)
  • Etulia - Reni (Ukraine) (operated by Ukrainian Railways)

Deletions since previous edition

The following routes previously listed under "Other Sparse services" no longer have a passenger service:

  • Ocniţa - Chernivtsi (Ukraine)
  • Basarabeasca - Revaca
