The transfer to summer time will bring about changes in the timetable of passenger trains on the Tallinn-St Petersburg and Tallinn-Moscow routes. International Go Rail trains will be following the new timetable from 30 March.The changes mainly concern the departure times of the Tallinn-Moscow train and the Tallinn-St Petersburg train travelling in the second half of the week. These trains will depart the Baltic Railway Station and head for Russia an hour later than they currently do. The time difference also causes changes in the times the trains will depart stations along the way and arrive at their destinations.
“Seasonal changes in the timetable have to be made because Estonia transfers to summer time but Russia doesn’t,” explained Jolan Ševtsov, Development Director at Go Rail. “No train will leave earlier because of the changes. This means nobody will miss their train because of the changes to the timetable.”
The passenger train from Tallinn to Moscow will be leaving the Baltic Railway Station an hour later, at 18.00, starting from the last Sunday in March. The train will still be leaving Leningradsky Railway Station in Moscow at 18.05.
The departure times of the daily passenger train on the Tallinn-St Petersburg route from the Baltic Railway Station and the Vitebsky Railway Station will remain the same – it will leave Tallinn at 7.50 and St Petersburg at 17.33.
The Go Rail passenger train that travels from Tallinn to St Petersburg in the second half of the week (i.e. Thursday, Friday and Sunday) will be leaving the Baltic Railway Station an hour later, i.e. at 15.26. The train will still be leaving St Petersburg at 6.55 on Friday, Saturday and Monday.
The Tallinn-St Petersburg train calls at Tapa, Rakvere, Jõhvi, Narva, Ivangorod and Kingissepa; the Moscow train also calls at Bologoye and Tver.
