Rust and ruins - Rīga-Liepāja railway

This time theme day and Out-Of-Riga Sunday happens to be at the same time.

It's rust because railway lines and even stones around them are always rusty (don't know why) and it's (almost) ruins because - believe it or not - in such an important route there is only 1 train per week. See other "rust and ruins" in the world.
