HISTORY OF GO RAIL
Go Rail traces its history back to 1870, when the Baltic railway was completed and train transport became available between Estonia and Russia.
The state-owned company Estonian Railways (Eesti Raudtee, EVR) was set up to manage the country’s railways.
Joint undertaking EVR Ekspress was established on the basis of EVR’s international passenger transport department, with its principal activity being the operation of international train paths.
o Group acquired the EVR Express’ shares, the company was merged with group and renamed Go Rail.
We expanded our operations by introducing rail freight carriage.
We opened a training centre to educate a new generation of train drivers and provide further training.
Go Rail’s training centre offers general training for train drivers, certification training for train drivers and periodic further training for train drivers for certificate renewal. The activities of the training centre are licensed by the Ministry of Education and Research.
