Lithuanian Railways
Lithuanian Railways (Lietuvos Geležinkeliai) began under Russian colonial rule with the building in 1858-60 of a line from Daugavpils via Vilnius and Kaunas to Virbalis as part of the Warsaw to St. Petersburg Railway. Lithuanian State Railways currently has 1,087 miles of 5 ft. gauge track and 14 miles of standard gauge track. An additional 111 miles of 2 ft. 6 in. track is now operated by Aukštaitijos Siaurasis Geležinkelis as a heritage railway.
