Obscure services

Rīga pasažieru — Vagonu Parks/Vagonnyi Park (— Jāņavārti)

(ERA-E 114C3, not shown; ERA-R 251C2, not shown) LV23/1

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.
