(Šeštokai -) Mockava LG - Trakiszki PKP (- Suwałki)

[D] PKP works to Šeštokai on standard gauge tracks, which are interlaced with broad gauge [1520mm] from Mockava with one daytime train pair from Warszawa to Suwałki and Šeštokai, with connections from/to Kaunas. There is a "SUW2000" gauge changing system at Mockava but this was used only by the overnight passenger train pair which was withdrawn after 28 May 2005 and replaced by a road service, which itself was withdrawn in 2012. As part of the "Rail Baltica" freight corridor project, work is underway extending the standard gauge tracks initially to Kaunas.
