Braniewo PKP - Mamonowo RŽD (- Kaliningrad)

[D] A single-track, 1435mm gauge line, used by a seasonal Berlin – Gdynia – Kaliningrad service. In Russia, the route is mainly parallel to, but occasionally interlaced with the RŽD 1520mm gauge freight only track to Braniewo and Bogaczewo. PKP works to Mamonowo RŽD, with a RŽD standard gauge M62 diesel working to and from Kaliningrad.

Bartoszyce PKP - Bagrationovsk RŽD (- Kaliningrad)

[D] Disused freight only line. 1435mm gauge track extends to just north of Bagrationovsk where it is severed, and 1520mm gauge tracks reached a factory just north of Bartoszyce (interlaced with the 1435mm gauge track).There has been no traffic on either gauge to the north of Bartoszyce for many years, although an enthusiasts special reached the border on the standard gauge tracks in May 2003.

Skandawa PKP - Zheleznodorozhny RŽD

[D] Freight only. PKP works on 1435mm gauge to Zheleznodorozhny with standard gauge RŽD diesels onwards to the exchange sidings to the south of Chernyakhovsk. In Poland 1520mm gauge extends to exchange sidings to the north and east of Skandawa station with a connecting standard gauge branch. Viewed in May 2003, no traffic crosses the border on the broad gauge.
