“Siaurukas” railway station

This dark red brick, single-storey building was the site of the Klaipėda Narrow Gauge Railway Station, or Klaipėda Narrow Gauge, a century ago. The narrow gauge railway, which operated under the name of Memeler Kleinbahn in the Klaipėda region until the end of the Second World War.

One joint-stock company built the first three lines between 1904 and 1906. The narrow gauge rails to the outskirts of the city were completed and put into operation on 22 October 1906 for cargo and passenger transport. During World War I, the railway declined because the bridge over the Danė river was blown up. After the war, the railway tracks were dismantled and the narrow-gauge railway station was used for other purposes.
