History

After the independence of Estonia, the state-owned company Eesti Raudtee was founded on January 1 1992, as the national railway company of Estonia. On August 31, 2001, 66% of the stock in the company was sold by the government to Baltic Rail Services (BRS) [cite web |url=http://www.evr.ee/?id=1313 |title=About Estonian Railways: Corporate information: History |publisher=Eesti Raudtee |accessdate=2007-07-25] , part-owned by Railroad Development Corporation. [cite web |url=http://www.rrdc.com/op_estonia_evr_past.html |title=Former RDC operating entity | accessdate=2007-09-14]

Following an election in 2003, the new government changed the rules on open access rights and capped the level of track charges, which reduced the railway's viability.
