Alex Malianov has sent the following information. If you are not familiar with the surviving Russian narrow gauge railways, might like to consult the list of them he assembled a few years ago.


This is the current (November 2016) passenger train schedules of 750mm gauge railways in Russia. Information is taken from http://www.rusbestrailways.ru and https://rasp.yandex.ru. There is a minor update below for resumed normal services on the Alapaevsk system (17th March 2017).
