An alternative to the main line between Częstochowa and Poraj. From a report received those previously listed trains no longer run via line 703 [confirmed in map view] but via or only from Częstochowa Stradom which is not shown in the 102 PDF. As there are now no services via Line 703 all previous entries have been deleted and there is a new PL20/107A entry for the rare track line 155 these still cover.
  
An alternative to the main line between Częstochowa and Poraj. Line 703 is non-passenger which diverges at the north end of Częstochowa Towarowa (marshalling yard) and runs on the west side of the main line south of Częstochowa Raków where a temporary platform has been provided. It stays on the west side and climbs over the main line to join TT109 between Częstochowa Stradom and Koniecpol at podg Kucelinka. The non-passenger Line 155 to Poraj diverges here and note there is '''no''' connection at podg Kucelinka between Line 701 [Table 109], the passenger connection from Częstochowa, and Line 155; all trains using Line 155 must therefore use Line 703.  
+
Lines 703 and 701 give the impression of being a grade separated junction but is not, line 701 on the east side is used by passenger services in both directions. Line 703 has returned to being freight only and diverges at the north end of Częstochowa Towarowa (marshalling yard) to run on the west side of the yard to Częstochowa Raków where a temporary platform had been provided on the goods lines. It then climbs to go over the main line to Katowice to join T109 between Częstochowa Stradom and Koniecpol at podg Kucelinka where the non-passenger Line 155 to Poraj now shown as PL20/107A diverges. Note there is '''no''' connection at podg Kucelinka between the normal Częstochowa - Kielce passenger track [east side line 701] and Line 155.
  
Enter 102 in the [https://portalpasazera.pl/en/Tablice Search by Table section] and look for trains with a '<' symbol against Korwinów as timings are regularly altered significantly.

From a report received the services previously quoted as also using line 703 in PL20/107 only use rare track line 155 and go via or to/from Częstochowa Stradom. If not a through train to/from Częstochowa main station, the PKP Journey Planner shows a connecting bus service. These services are indicated by a '<' symbol against Częstochowa Rakow and Korwinów.  The non-passenger Line 155 to Poraj diverges from the Częstochowa - Kielce main line at podg Kucelinka. Note there is an alternative route to/from Częstochowa Stradom via a short curve [line 702] from Częstochowa Rakow but the journey planner map view shows all using line 155.

Used by services from Skarzysko Kamienna and PL20/114, plus Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski to Sandomierz by a dated weekend-only pair of locals. Also note Sandomierz – Grębów is covered by those listed in PL20/116.

Diversions via long distance services continue throughout the summer 2019/20 TT period. Table 120 now shows the local services calling at reopened (from 15 March 2020) stations Lubocza & Kraków Nowa Huta, so identification of diverted services is now very straightforward with a | through Nowa Huta and "<" markers between Kraków Główny and Podłęże. '''Reports of the location of Nowa Huta station would be appreciated to confirm if it is the old PKP platforms on the north side, or those further east as used by the unadvertised workers services nearer the huge steel works entrance'''.  
  
{| class="ostable"
+
To/from the east end of Kraków Nowa Huta the longer north side Line loop is the usual route in both directions but it has been known for services to take a shorter inside curve to/from podg Koscielniki. Note both are line 95 and this is shown clearer on [https://www.openrailwaymap.org/ Open Railway Map] than the Mały Atlas Kraków insert. Eastbound services may also use a significantly separate route involving a flyover approaching Podłęże although this was closed for works in Autumn 2019 so '''any reports of what route is taken at Kraków Nowa Huta, and approaching Podłęże would also be appreciated by the Compilers.'''

Diversions continue throughout 2018/19 TT period with "<" markers on table 120 between Kraków Główny and Podłęże. Note the east and westbound services may take different routes from the east end of Kraków Nowa Huta, plus to the west of Podłęże potentially should use the flyover route eastbound and ground level route westbound although the flyover route was closed for works in Autumn 2019. '''Any reports of travelling any other route at Kraków Nowa Huta apart from the longer loop on the north side would be appreciated by the Compilers.'''
 
 
There is also allegedly an ongoing workers' service via the above route to the closed PKP stations serving the steel works complex at Nowa Huta but no timings have been available since the 2008 working timetable. At that time the evening and weekend services were worked by a track maintenance draisine with very limited capacity.

This route is used by the daytime services between Kyiv/L'viv and Przemyśl Główny, and from 2017/18 the night service to/from Odessa, all operated by Ukrainian railways. Note such trains terminating at Przemyśl Główny are no longer shown in PKP 122 so are listed below.  
  
Up until the 2016/17 TT change it was believed Lines 91 and 92 were used on alternate days by the overnight L'viv/Lvov services, with either a manual gauge change at Przemyśl (with a longer stop) or an SUW2000 gauge change at Mostys'ka 2 (with a relatively short stop at Przemyśl). The gauge changer at Mostys'ka 2 was noted out of use as at October 2017 but an April 2018 traveller confirms his overnight L'viv/Lvov services used Line 91 and the Mostys'ka 2 gauge changer and Przemyśl Główny arrival/departure sheets confirm use of only standard gauge platforms.

This of course does not preclude use of the gauge changer at Przemyśl and '''further reports would be appreciated by the Compilers''' although the Beta version of the PKP Journey planner which can display a route map clearly shows the 2019 services booked via Line 91.

A limited Bank Holiday and summer weekends service resumed from 11 June 2016. From Summer 2017 this was extended across the border to Medzilaborce in Slovakia and this continues in 2019 between 29 June and 1 September.

All services between Kraków and Zakopane had to reverse at Sucha Beskidzka until an avoiding curve opened on 11 June 2017. Since then most trains run via the avoiding line, calling at the new station of Sucha Beskidzka Zamek. Use of the North to West and South to West curves can be identified by the train calling at Sucha Beskidzka. The South to West curve has fewer services than the North to West curve.

Jasło - Gorlice-Zagórzany services are listed in table 131. The Gorlice branch service is now shown in a new table 131a in 2019/20, making it much easier to see its complicated operating pattern.

A limited Bank Holiday and summer weekends service resumed from Zagórz to Łupków on 11 June 2016. From Summer 2017 some were extended across the border to Medzilaborce in Slovakia and this continues in 2020. The summer 2020 timetable (26 June to 29 August) is in TT134. There is one SO Poznan - Łupków which returns on Sunday, and two Zagórz - Medzilaborce train pairs at weekends, including Fridays.

The last attempt at local services between Oświęcim and Kraków lasted just one year and were withdrawn on 10 December 2016. There is no 141 PDF so trains via this route can be identified in table 140 by NOT having a timing but a < at Trzebinia.  '''Note that trains which use the Oświęcim avoiding line do not quite run the full length of this entry but are shown in PL19/128'''
+
Short term 2019/20 use is in the 126 and 132 PDFs. This curve was used between 25 June - 31 August 2019 by local services and until 14 December 2019 by a TLK train pair to/from Żagorz operated by SKPL due to major Rzeszów Główny station reconstruction works.  
IC114 is re-routed via Trzebinia until March.

This north <=> east curve links the Mysłowice and Skawina lines. During major works at Kraków Glowny between the night of 29/30 November until 14 December all Przemyśl - Świnoujście - Przemyśl services are diverted this way, and one pair between 29/30 November and the TT change date.

All local services between Kraków Plaszow and Skawina are operated by buses in 2019/20 with no TLK's.

This 4 km single track line flies over the curves to the Gliwice line and runs via a staff halt at the PKP depot to Peron (platform) 1. It resumed use as the normal route for PR local trains with the June 2016 timetable change and until March 2019 was used by all services other than those routed via options 2 & 3.  
  
2. Line 151 (northbound). From a travellers July 2017 observation, the equivalent of the IC train below used a line initially heading east at podg. Stare Koźle before going underneath Lines 709 and 681 to run alongside southbound Line 151 on the west side of the yard to arrive in Kędzierzyn- Koźle Peron 4 to reverse to head towards Gliwice. This line at its divergence is not shown in the Mały Atlas.

PR Łódź sponsored the first passenger service on this branch since 1988 for summer 2014 but from 2017 services ran only on "Harvest" weekend which in 2019 was three pairs on 14/15 September. So it was a surprise when 2020 details were announced of a pair of DMU trains on Saturdays from 8th - 30th August and that tickets appear to be free if you apply through the email address quoted in [https://polregio.pl/pl/dla-podroznych/informacje/pociagiem-polregio-do-spaly-bezplatne-przejazdy-2020/ this PolRegio link].

The 2019/2020 PDFs issue dated 13 December 2019 for table 120 implied by its < markers that TLK36170 19:57/20:14 from Przemsyl Glówny to Wroclaw/Berlin/Gdynia would avoid Kraków Glówny after travelling via Nova Huta all year meaning it would potentially use this route. However the Journey Planner and Bochnia Peron sheets show it booked to call at Kraków Glowny 23:30 to 00:06 and the Map View confirms this.

Introduction

These entries are based on the timetable from 15 December 2019 to 12 December 2020. However, it should be noted it is completely reissued about four times per year with "adjustments" due on 15 March, 14 June, 30 August and 18 October 2020. In addition, there are frequent amendments within timetable periods.

Standard abbreviations are explained in General Information. Map references relate to the 2019 Polish Regional version of the European Railway Atlas published by M.G. Ball ISBN: 978-1-9161212-1-8 and the Mały Atlas Linii Kolejowych Polski 2011 published by Eurosprinter ISBN: 978-83-931006-3-7

This 3.8 km east - south link with the Kielce - Częstochowa line is used by services marked in table 109 with a '<' at all stations between Żelisławice and Częstochowa plus a timing at Katowice or Wroclaw.

Psary – p.odg. Starzyny – Kozłów

[100] (ERA182C3, F8) PL20/105

This north - southeast link with the Koniecpol - Kozłów line is used by all trains using the CMK between Warszawa and Krakow with a vertical bar '|' against Kozłów.

End of connections to and from the CMK

Chrusty Nowe (p.odg. Bęzelin) – Żakowice (p.odg. Pękowice)

[102, 601] (ERA177C1, F9) PL20/106

This south-to-west curve avoiding Koluszki is used by trains between Łódź and Piotrków Trybunalski/Częstochowa that do not call at Koluszki.

Częstochowa (Częstochowa Towarowa) – line 703 – podg Kucelinka – line 155 - Poraj

[102] (ERA182B3; F7 R15) PL20/107

An alternative to the main line between Częstochowa and Poraj. From a report received those previously listed trains no longer run via line 703 [confirmed in map view] but via or only from Częstochowa Stradom which is not shown in the 102 PDF. As there are now no services via Line 703 all previous entries have been deleted and there is a new PL20/107A entry for the rare track line 155 these still cover.

Lines 703 and 701 give the impression of being a grade separated junction but is not, line 701 on the east side is used by passenger services in both directions. Line 703 has returned to being freight only and diverges at the north end of Częstochowa Towarowa (marshalling yard) to run on the west side of the yard to Częstochowa Raków where a temporary platform had been provided on the goods lines. It then climbs to go over the main line to Katowice to join T109 between Częstochowa Stradom and Koniecpol at podg Kucelinka where the non-passenger Line 155 to Poraj now shown as PL20/107A diverges. Note there is no connection at podg Kucelinka between the normal Częstochowa - Kielce passenger track [east side line 701] and Line 155.

[Częstochowa Stradom –] podg Kucelinka – line 155 - Poraj

[102] (ERA182B3; F7 R15) PL20/107A

From a report received the services previously quoted as also using line 703 in PL20/107 only use rare track line 155 and go via or to/from Częstochowa Stradom. If not a through train to/from Częstochowa main station, the PKP Journey Planner shows a connecting bus service. These services are indicated by a '<' symbol against Częstochowa Rakow and Korwinów. The non-passenger Line 155 to Poraj diverges from the Częstochowa - Kielce main line at podg Kucelinka. Note there is an alternative route to/from Częstochowa Stradom via a short curve [line 702] from Częstochowa Rakow but the journey planner map view shows all using line 155.

[105] (ERA188A4/B4, R18) PL20/107B

The Katowice - Tunel service was diverted via line 171 between 20 March - 6 April 2020, but nothing since then. Note that the route from podj Dorota to the curve towards Dąbrowa Gornicza Wschodnia is on tracks separated by width and height with line 133 in-between so travel in both directions is recommended.

Koniecpol – Kozłów (p.odg. Starzyny)

[107, 109] (ERA182C3, F8) PL20/108

This 11 km line reopened in the 2012 timetable. Not identifiable in its own table, this is used by services in Table 109 with a timing at Częstochowa/Częstochowa Stradom and Kraków not running via Kielce. Much increased use since 2017 with the closure of Dąbrowa Górnicza Ząbkowice to Jaworzno Szczakowa.

[111/550] (ERA183C5, E10) PL20/110

This west-to-south curve avoiding Dęblin is used by direct services between Radom and Lublin which appear in table 111 with a '<' symbol against Dęblin.

(Kielce –) Sitkowka Nowiny – Busko Zdroj

[112] (ERA183A2/3, F9/G9) PL20/111

A two pairs summer SSuO service resumed in 2018 on a 43.5km line which closed to passenger services on 10 October 2004. For those wishing to visit the Town/Spa note the station is some way away, but it is believed there are connecting buses. The table 112 PDF confirms two train pairs running daily until at least 30 August, one starting/finishing in Katowice.

(Tomaszów Mazowiecki – Dęba Opoczyńska –) p.odg. Zapowiedź – Radzice

[100, 113, 114] (ERA183A5, E9) PL20/112

Shared as far as p.odg. Zapowiedź with PL20/101, these are the only services to cover the 0.7km section to Radzice then covered to/from Radom by services listed in PL20/102. There is all year use scheduled in 2019/20 shown in 113 PDF.

The daily Tomaszów Mazowiecki – Drzewica - Radom local service is planned to be re-introduced from 30 August 2020 with two pairs.

TLK38170 Kraków Główny - 23:36/01:23 Radom - Kołobrzeg

[Łódź –] Gałkówek – Mikołajów [– Tomaszów Mazowiecki]

[114/601] (ERA177C1, E8, R11) PL20/113

There are two possible routes between Łódź and Tomaszów Mazowiecki avoiding Koluszki - both routes are scheduled during 2019/20.

The first is a direct double track line 25 from Gałkówek via Żakowice Połudnowie to Mikołajów indicated by a '<' at Słotwiny and used by more frequent express services or

single track Line 537 via Słotwiny, podg Zielen and Żakowice Połudnowie indicated by calls at Słotwiny in the 114 PDF. Note Interrail and PR Regional tickets are not valid on local ŁKA trains and Gałkówek to podg Zielen is common with part of PL20/603.

Note no Żakowice Połudnowie station listing appears in the PDF for table 114 or 601. Additional confirmation of use of the alternative via line 537 would be obtained via the station's departure sheet.

Skarżysko Kamienna avoiding line: Lipowe Pole (p.odg. SKA) – SKB – Skarżysko Kościelne (p.odg. SKE)

[115] (ERA183A4, F9) PL20/114

This route (line 566), ca 5 km long, provides a direct connection between the Radom and Sandomierz lines and is indicated in Table 115 by a < marker against Skarżysko Kamienna. There are two TLK services, both southbound, leaving Radom at 10:49 and 19:22 14/6 to 19/7 and 10-29/8.

Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski – Sandomierz – Grębów

[115] (ERA183B5-B5,C3, F10-G10) PL20/115

Used by services from Skarzysko Kamienna and PL20/114, plus Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski to Sandomierz by a dated weekend-only pair of locals. Also note Sandomierz – Grębów is covered by those listed in PL20/116.

Sandomierz – Sobów (– Tarnobrzeg)

[116/126] (ERA183C3, G10) PL20/116

A limited service was re-introduced in summer 2017 and from March 2020, they partly appear in an expanded table 116 PDF. This is an extremely difficult route to identify from the timetable pdfs.

R23433 Stalowa Wola Poludnie – 05:39 Sandomierz - Rzeszów Główny
R32436/32434 Rzeszów Główny - 17:48 SX/16:07 SO Tarnobrzeg - Sandomierz - Stalowa Wola Poludnie

Przeworsk avoiding line: Przeworsk Gorliczyna – podg Przeworsk Zachodnia

[116, 121] (ERA184A1, G11), PL20/117

This curve enables trains between Stalowa Wola and Rzeszow to avoid reversing at Przeworsk. All year use as indicated by no timing at Przeworsk timetbles 116 and 121. Currently four trains each way use the curve.

Kraków northern loop line: (Kraków Główny –) Kraków Batowice – podg Dłubnia – Kraków Nowa Huta – Podłęże

[120] (ERA171B5, R15) PL20/118

Diversions via long distance services continue throughout the summer 2019/20 TT period. Table 120 now shows the local services calling at reopened (from 15 March 2020) stations Lubocza & Kraków Nowa Huta, so identification of diverted services is now very straightforward with a | through Nowa Huta and "<" markers between Kraków Główny and Podłęże. Reports of the location of Nowa Huta station would be appreciated to confirm if it is the old PKP platforms on the north side, or those further east as used by the unadvertised workers services nearer the huge steel works entrance.

To/from the east end of Kraków Nowa Huta the longer north side Line loop is the usual route in both directions but it has been known for services to take a shorter inside curve to/from podg Koscielniki. Note both are line 95 and this is shown clearer on Open Railway Map than the Mały Atlas Kraków insert. Eastbound services may also use a significantly separate route involving a flyover approaching Podłęże although this was closed for works in Autumn 2019 so any reports of what route is taken at Kraków Nowa Huta, and approaching Podłęże would also be appreciated by the Compilers.

Kraków Glówny avoider via Kraków Olsza

[120/140] (ERA182, R15) PL20/119

Increased use in the summer timetable period with four InterCity services, all westbound.

(Przemyśl Główny –) Hurko – Medyka (– Mostys'ka 2)

[122] (ERA184B1, H12, R35) PL20/120

There are three routes between these points; from south to north they are:

  • Line 91, a cross border 1435 mm gauge line which ends east of Mostys'ka 1 in Ukraine.

This is used between Przemyśl Główny and Medyka by the PKP local service shown in Table 122 and usually by the through Wroclaw - L'viv service, plus LEO Express have applied to run through to Mostys'ka 2.

  • Line 989, a 1435 mm gauge line through the marshalling yards, re-joining Line 91 at Medyka.

No passenger services use this line. Note that page H12 of the "Atlas Linii Kolejowych Polski" is incorrect in showing passenger stations on this line; they are on Line 91 and the enlarged page R35 shows the situation correctly.

  • Line 92, the 1520 mm gauge line into Ukraine.

This route is used by the daytime services between Kyiv/L'viv and Przemyśl Główny, and from 2017/18 the night service to/from Odessa, all operated by Ukrainian railways. Note such trains terminating at Przemyśl Główny are no longer shown in PKP 122 so are listed below.

Up until the 2016/17 TT change it was believed Lines 91 and 92 were used on alternate days by the overnight L'viv/Lvov services, with either a manual gauge change at Przemyśl (with a longer stop) or an SUW2000 gauge change at Mostys'ka 2 (with a relatively short stop at Przemyśl). The gauge changer at Mostys'ka 2 was noted out of use as at October 2017 but an April 2018 traveller confirms his overnight L'viv/Lvov services used Line 91 and the Mostys'ka 2 gauge changer.

This of course does not preclude use of the gauge changer at Przemyśl and further reports would be appreciated by the Compilers although the Beta version of the PKP Journey planner route map clearly shows the 2019/20 services booked via Line 91 and the Przemyśl Główny Peron sheets that a Standard gauge platform is used in both directions by the overnight through service.

(Jasło –) Gorlice-Zagórzany – Gorlice

[131/a] (ERA186B5, H10) PL20/126

Jasło - Gorlice-Zagórzany services are listed in table 131. The Gorlice branch service is now shown in a new table 131a in 2019/20, making it much easier to see its complicated operating pattern.

Zagórz – Komańcza – Łupków - Medzilaborce [ZSR]

[131/134] (ERA186C4, 187A5, H11) PL20/127

A limited Bank Holiday and summer weekends service resumed from Zagórz to Łupków on 11 June 2016. From Summer 2017 some were extended across the border to Medzilaborce in Slovakia and this continues in 2020. The summer 2020 timetable (26 June to 29 August) is in TT134. There is one SO Poznan - Łupków which returns on Sunday, and two Zagórz - Medzilaborce train pairs at weekends, including Fridays.

Rzeszów Zachodni - Rzeszów Staroniwa (Rzeszów Głowny avoider) - line 611

[132] (ERA183C1, G11) PL20/128

Short term 2019/20 use is in the 126 and 132 PDFs. This curve was used between 25 June - 31 August 2019 by local services and until 14 December 2019 by a TLK train pair to/from Żagorz operated by SKPL due to major Rzeszów Główny station reconstruction works.

Sucha Beskidzka

[135] (ERA185B5, G8) PL20/129

All services between Kraków and Zakopane had to reverse at Sucha Beskidzka until an avoiding curve opened on 11 June 2017. Since then most Zakopane trains run via the avoiding line, calling at a new station of Sucha Beskidzka Zamek. Use of the North to West and South to West curves can be identified by any train calling at Sucha Beskidzka.

Kraków Plaszów – Kraków Bonarka (– Skawina)

[135a] (ERA182, R15) PL20/130

All local services between Kraków Plaszow and Skawina are operated by buses in 2019/20 with no TLK's. Running via this route was much reduced once the Kraków Plaszów avoiding curve opened in December 2017 so if this changes during the year enter 135a in the Search by Table section and look for trains starting/terminating/running via Kraków Plaszow.

Oświęcim – Skawina

[141] (ERA182B1/C1 G7-G8) PL20/131

The Praha - Kraków is rerouted via table 140 in 2019/20. From 27 June to 29 August 2020 there are morning PR trains from Katowice and Kraków to Zator which return in the early evening, so complete travel over the line in daylight is possible, but with a very long layover. In this period one overnight train travels the majority of the route. See PL20/132 for use from the Oświęcim avoiding curve junction.

Oświęcim avoiding curve: Oświęcim OwC1 – OwC - Skawina

[120/140/141] (ERA188C4, G7) PL20/132

This north <=> east curve links the Mysłowice and Skawina/Trzebinia lines. Used by occasional diversions in 2019/20 and Leo Express workings until 8 January 2019. One train uses the curve in the period 27 June to 29 August 2020.

Westbound departures from Katowice platforms 1-4 towards Katowice Ligota can run either via the main line (line 139) or via a flyover (line 656) over the main line to Gliwice. From observation, all trains departing from platform 1 at Katowice appear to use this route.

Czechowice Dziedzice avoiding line: Goczałkowice Zdrój (p.odg. Most Wisła) – Zabrzeg (p.odg. Ochodza)

[146, 147] (ERA188C3, H7) PL20/134

Czechowice-Dziedzice (p.odg Ochodza)- via Zabrzeg Czarnolesie Goods line 693 to (p.odg Bronów) - Chybie

[147] (ERA182A1, H7) PL20/137

There are no local Koleje Śląskie services running west from Czechowice Dziedzice between 11 May and 30 October 2020, they are diverted to/from Pszczyna and through the above yard. This was originally indicated in the March 2020 T147 PDF by < markers at Zabrzeg and Zabrzeg Czarnolesie stations but from June both stations are omitted from T147 timetable PDF but the Beta Journey Planner map view confirm these services remain scheduled via approximately 7km of Line 693 as per the heading. Additionally one daily pair of EIC's [09:37 from Pszczyna, 17:41 from Zebrzydowice] plus the FSuO northbound, MSO southbound Leo Express Kraków - Praha are uniquely shown to use the diversion until 12 December...

Both direction diversions are shown in map view to run on the south side of the yard which for some distance is out of sight of the parallel main line but any reports of the actual route taken would be appreciated by the Compilers.

Limited locals and one southbound EIC were shown diverted from 15 March.

Katowice Ligota - goods line 142 via Katowice Murcki - podg Mąkołowiec - Tychy

These changed from originally advertised to be 1 southbound and six northbound as per a table 151 PDF issued on 17 April and confirmed in Map view.

Nędza Wieś – Kuźnia Raciborska (p.odg. Turze)

[153/160] (ERA188B1, G6) PL20/138

This east-to-north chord avoiding Nędza station is used by trains running direct between Kędzierzyn Koźle and Rybnik. Use is indicated by < markers at stations from Nędza to Chałupki in Table 160. Note these services do not appear in table 153 but should use the direct route to/from Rybnik in PL20/139 which can be confirmed by the Map View in the Journey Planner before travel.

Rybnik – Sumina

[153/154/160] (ERA188B1, G6, H6) PL20/139

There are two routes between Rybnik and Sumina: a direct line and a longer route via Rybnik Towarowy and Rydułtowy used by almost all local services. Any TLK normally takes the direct line to/from Kędzierzyn-Koźle as previously indicated by a '<' symbol against the intermediate stations in table 153, [can be confirmed by the Journey Planner Map view] but these trains only appear in tables 154/160 to/from 220. There are also a few Rybnik - Racibórz locals booked the direct line on 18/19 & 25/26 April 2020 as per < markers in Table 153.

Services not booked to call at Sumina to/from the direct line may, but do not always use the station avoiding line.

Kędzierzyn-Koźle – p.odg. Stare Koźle – Kędzierzyn-Koźle Azoty

[160] (ERA181C2 too detailed to be shown, R14) PL20/142

There are three routes between Kędzierzyn-Koźle and p.odg. Stare Koźle. From east to west they are:

1. Line 709. This line is usually the normal passenger route [but see point 2]. This 4 km single track line flies over the curves to the Gliwice line and runs via a staff halt at the PKP depot to Peron (platform) 1. It resumed use as the normal route for PR local trains with the June 2016 timetable change and until March 2019 was used by all services other than those routed via options 2 & 3.

2. Line 151 (northbound). From a travellers July 2017 observation, the equivalent of the IC train below used a line initially heading east at podg. Stare Koźle before going underneath Lines 709 and 681 to run alongside southbound Line 151 on the west side of the yard to arrive in Kędzierzyn-Koźle Peron 4 to reverse to head towards Gliwice. This is not shown in the Mały Atlas at its divergence but is line 330 in OpenRailwayMap.

IC 4124 Racibórz - 06:26 Kuźnia Raciborska - Warszawa Centralna

This service and all locals from the Racibórz direction as at mid March 2020 are booked into Peron IV due to closure of Peron I and II for engineering work but a report advised services to/from the south were using option 3 below in both directions. Therefore feedback on the route taken in either direction would be appreciated by the Compilers. Check the Kędzierzyn-Koźle arrivals sheet for the latest information.

3. Line 151 (southbound). This runs on the west side of the yard (Kędzierzyn-Koźle KKD) up to 0.5 km away from Line 709. Services from Kędzierzyn-Koźle Peron (platform) IV towards Rybnik and Racibórz must use this route. All local services to Racibórz and TLK's at 12:27 & 19:50 towards Rybnik are shown using Peron IV in the March 2020 departure sheets.

This line enables trains between Wrocław/Opole and Kielce, plus to Warszawa (via the CMK) [PL20/103] or Krakow [PL20/108] to avoid reversing at Częstochowa Osobowa (the main station) by calling instead at Częstochowa Stradom. Use can be identified in table 175 by a < at Częstochowa.

[175/180/315] (ERA182A3, F7) PL20/149

Despite not shown using this route in the original 2019/20 PDFs the Kraków - Szczecin pair apparently used this curve from day 1, plus an overnight pair shown booked via PL20/303 and line 173 were re-routed to call at Częstochowa Stradom and this curve.

Lisów – Herby Stare

[175] (ERA182A3, F7) PL20/149A

The east and westbound routes take significantly different routes through a forest between these points.

Lisów – podg Liswarta - Herby Nowe

[175/180] (ERA182A3, F7) PL20/149B

A press article indicated diversions via this west to north curve due to track works but searches show just one train affected. This was originally not shown in either PDF but has appeared in the June 180 PDF with a | for not calling at Herby Nowe [where it must reverse]. The Journey Planner Map View shows it scheduled via this curve but it is of course possible to run to Herby Stare to reverse [as this train is scheduled to do from Wednesday 29 July...] Any reports confirming use of the west to north curve would be appreciated by the Compilers.

(Zawiercie –) Łazy – Line 160 south, 186 north – Dąbrowa Gornicza Ząbkowice

[101/102] (ERA188A5/B5, too detailed to be shown correctly, G7 R18) PL20/150

None shown in 2019/20. This is an alternative north and south bound freight route identified by < markers between Łazy and Dąbrowa Górnicza Sikorka. Southbound would use a separate vertical alignment followed by a flyover to join line 186 avoiding Chruszczobród. Any use northbound would again use line 186 avoiding Chruszczobród station, then run on the east side of the first, then in-between parts of two freight yards north of Łazy. Last Southbound use scheduled during 2016, northbound on 11 August 2017.

[102, 105] (ERA188A4/B4, R18) PL20/152

Map view now shows this train booked this route and not PL20/159. Note there is a large flying junction approaching podg Dorota.

Note A SSuO 42224 08:19 Katowice - Busko-Zdrój

Note A 1 to 9 August

Also see entry PL20/159 which covers part of this entry from podg Dorota - part line 133 - Dąbrowa Gornicza Ząbkowice and additional unusual track.

Kielce avoiding line: Kielce Piaski (podg Piaski k. Kielc) – Kielce Herbskie (line 567)

[100/113/110] (ERA183A4, F9) PL20/153

Last scheduled diversionary use between 10 July - 10 August 2017.

Tomaszów Mazowiecki – Spała

[114] (ERA182C5, E8) PL20/154

PR Łódź sponsored the first passenger service on this branch since 1988 for summer 2014 but from 2017 services ran only on "Harvest" weekend which in 2019 was three pairs on 14/15 September. So it was a surprise when 2020 details were announced of a pair of DMU trains on Saturdays from 8th - 30th August and that tickets appear to be free if you apply through the email address quoted in this PolRegio link.

Kraków Mydlniki - Line 95 - Kraków Batowice

[107/140] (ERA182, G8 & R15) PL20/155

Last used by one pair of overnights from 2 September - 20 October 2018 as confirmed by a traveller and station entries for Kraków Lobzów and Kraków Mydlniki in table 107. The 2019/2020 PDFs issue dated 13 December 2019 for table 120 implied by its < markers that TLK36170 19:57/20:14 from Przemsyl Glówny to Wroclaw/Berlin/Gdynia would avoid Kraków Glówny after travelling via Nova Huta all year meaning it would potentially use this route. However the Journey Planner and Bochnia Peron sheets show it booked to call at Kraków Glowny 23:30 to 00:06 and the Map View confirms this.

Kraków northern loop line: (Miechów –) Zesławice (podg Raciborowice) – podg Dłubnia – Kraków Nowa Huta – Podłęże

[107/120] (ERA171B5, R15) PL20/156

Last regularly used up to 9 June 2018 plus some 2018 "Woodstock" services.

Żurawica - line 614 - Hurko [Przemyśl avoiding line]

[121] (ERA184B1, H12) PL20/157

Last used between 5 - 9 November 2018 by limited services diverted to/from Przemyśl Glowny via Hurko [reverse].

(Chabowka –) Rabka Zdrój – Nowy Sacz

[136] (ERA185C5, 186A5, H8/9) PL20/158

In 2020 services were planned between Chabówka - Mszana Dolna/Kasina Wielka SSuO or Chabówka - Nowy Sącz SuO from 4 July to 26 August but the last two weekends were cancelled due to the imposition of a 50% virus related seat sale restriction making them uneconomic. Details and bookings were via the Chabowka Museum website for the Kasina Wielka services or kolejegalicyjskie website to Nowy Sacz.

(Katowice – Mysłówice –) Sosnowiec Jęzor – podg Dorota – Dąbrowa Górnicza Ząbkowice

[140/102] (ERA182B1/C1 R18) PL20/159

The section from podg Dorota to Dąbrowa Górnicza Ząbkowice is common with PL20/152 and the last diversions were between 17 April - 8 May 2018. There are two alternative routes as listed below but with no intermediate stop it is impossible to confirm which would be used from the PDFs although travellers reported both in use. They are:-

  • from Mysłówice via Sosnowiec Jęzor and Line 180 to podg Dorota. Note the flyover south of podg Dorota to line 180 shown in the Mały Atlas no longer exists so southbound services may be more likely to use this route.
  • from Mysłówice via Sosnowiec Jęzor to podg Długoszyn (west of Jaworzno Szczakowa), curve 667 and Sosnowiec Maczki to podg Dorota

Map View showed three trains originally booked via curve 667 but one is now shown in map view via PL20/152.

[151/151a/155] (ERA182A1, H7) PL20/160

This line provides an alternative route, further west, between Katowice and Katowice Ligota. Last used between 1 and 10 August 2017 (SSuX). They can be identified by a < marker at just Katowice-Brynów and an extended journey time of more than 30 minutes.

Gliwice - Bytom

[166] (ERA188A2/A3, G7 R16/17) PL20/161

In use by one holiday train for a short period in the summer. Note the junction at Bytom is east of the platforms. See PL20/145A for limited use from the Bytom avoiding curve junction to Gliwice by the Nice - Moskva and vv.....

Note A 53190 Łeba - 06:51 Gliwice - Kraków Główny

Note A 14 to 31 July 2020

Częstochowa Stradom – Poraj

[175,102] (ERA182B3; F7 R15) PL20/162

There are two possible routes between these stations:

  • via line 61 (the normal passenger line) as far as podg Kucelinka and then non-passenger 155 to Poraj via Częstochowa Mirów. Note Line 155 can be travelled as it has scheduled use in 2019/20 as per PL20/107A.
  • via line 702 (a short non-passenger curve) to Częstochowa Raków and then the normal passenger line 102 to Poraj.

One 'Woodstock' service in 2016 was identified as being diverted but it is not known which of the two routes was taken.
