Railway Operators in Estonia


EVR - Eesti Raudtee

Network length, gauge and electrification (2013):

Eesti Raudtee owns the electric lines around Tallinn and the main lines from Tallinn to the east and southeast, towards Russia and Latvia.
Eesti Raudtee operates most freight services in Estonia. Baltic Rail Services has taken a 66% stake in Eesti Raudtee, but in 2006 EVR was sold back to the state of Estonia. Maybe the operating part of the company will be sold again, the network will stay in the hands of the gouvernment. On 1 January 2009 a separate EVR Infra and EVR Cargo subsidiary were be created.
In 2013 24.4 million tonnes of freight were transported over EVR tracks. 4.1 million passengers travelled on national lines, 156.3 thousand people used trains towards Moscow and St. Petersburg.
