Border Crossings: Lithuania - Poland

Revision as of 10:47, 20 October 2015 by Reef Watch (talk | contribs) ((Šeštokai -) Mockava LG - Trakiszki PKP (- Suwałki); Passenger service starts 13 December 2015; remove references to std gauge to/beyond Kaunas as not relevant to border crossing)

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

[D] Services have been withdrawn whilst the "Rail Baltica" project work was underway, extending the standard gauge tracks initially to Kaunas. Previously PKP worked to Šeštokai on standard gauge tracks, which are interlaced with broad gauge [1520 mm] from Mockava, on 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is a "SUW2000" gauge changing system at Mockava but this was used only by the overnight passenger train pair which was withdrawn after 28 May 2005 and replaced by a road service, which itself was withdrawn in 2012.

A through passenger service between Kraków and Mockava will start on 13 December 2015.
