Take a sneak peek at how Rail Baltica might look

The 6-billion-euro Rail Baltica infrastructure project is showing off what might be the shape of things to come in the form of designs for the stations, bridges, crossings and other pieces of civil engineering likely to be located along its 870-kilometer route.

Online galleries of the designs can be viewed above and online at the official Rail Baltica website, though they all come with one important caveat: "The images are illustrative and may differ from final design of infrastruture objects."

However, Līva Biseniece, a spokeswoman for the project told LSM: "These images are indicative but they are not wishful thinking either. The images are based on a very detailed study to be used by the Rail Baltica designers and architects. They will have to apply these requirements in their design work and follow the principles outlined by the study. The actual design work on the main line will be done by the end on 2021. This is when really accurate designs for each specific element in specific location will be available."

Each image also comes with an explanation of the thinking behind it.
