Estonia - private rail operators

For a full scale picture, please click on the picture shown !


Much of the private operators' rail traffic in Estonia has to do with transporting Russian crude oil through Estonia to the Baltic sea ports, for example Muuga near Tallinn or Sillamäe further east. This locomotive is a class 2TE116 owned by the company AS E.R.S or Estonian Railway Services. The company specialises in oil transport. Picture at Tartu station 24.9.2008 by Ilkka Siissalo.

The same oil train as in the two pictures above, but now at the Estonian - Russian border station of Narva. The red Transoil 2TE116 is standing aside at the left and the train has now been taken over by a similar but green 2TE116 of the Russian state railways RZD. In the background a class ChEM3 shunter of Eesti Raudtee. Picture in Narva 6.12.2007 by Ilkka Siissalo.
