Stralsund Rügendamm – Wüstenfelde (Abzw Srg)
 (ERA-E 44C4; ERA-R 86B3; S+W 6A1) DE23/102
This east to south curve is used by trains between the island of Rügen and the Pasewalk or Neubrandenburg lines, if not booked to call at Stralsund Hbf.
With the re-routeing of the overnight trains between Malmö and Berlin to run via Padborg there is no longer any regular passenger use of this curve.
The curve is used occasionally by diverted trains to and from Rügen when Stralsund Hbf is unavailable. It has also been used in the past by trips from Berlin to the Störtebeker Festspiele, held on Rügen throughout the summer each year, but in 2023 their website merely links to regular services on the DB journey planner.
Papendorf (Dalwitzhof) – Rostock-Kassebohm (Abzw Rostock Warnowbrücke West)
 (S+W 123 B3) DE23/103
This south to east route enables trains to run between the Schwerin or Neustrelitz lines and the Stralsund line without having to reverse at Rostock Hbf. There are separate connections from the Schwerin and Neustrelitz lines to Abzw Dalwitzhof Nordkopf.
The route to and from the Schwerin line is used by diverted IC/ICE services between Hamburg and Stralsund. This occurs on the weekends of 9/10 and 16/17 September 2023 when all IC/ICE services on this route do not call at Rostock Hbf.
It was also used in July and August 2022 by a pair of Urlaubs Express services between Lörrach Hbf and Ostseebad Binz. However in 2023, these services are only between running between Lörrach and Hamburg-Altona, thus not using this connection.
The route to and from the Neustrelitz line is occasionally used by diverted IC/ICE services between Berlin and Stralsund.
