Lietuvos Geležinkeliai (Lithuanian Railways, or LG) is scrapping its passenger service between Vilnius and Moscow in a move that is expected to save the state railway company 2 million Euros annually, but passengers will continue to be able to take a Russian train to the Russian capital. Starting next Monday, May 15, 2017, LG's cars will not be added to the Russian train traveling from Kaliningrad to Moscow via Vilnius. LG last year saw the number of passengers on the Vilnius-Moscow service drop by 27 per cent compared with 2015.
