There are two routes available for ''S-Bahn'' trains between Leipzig Hbf (tief) and platforms 1 and 2 on the Bitterfeld line at Leipzig Messe.  These are via Leipzig Nord on the Eilenburg line (6396) or via the main line to Bitterfeld (6411). All ''S2'' and ''S6'' trains to and from Leipzig Messe or beyond now run via and call at Leipzig Nord and so use line 6396 and the connections between Leipzig Nordkopf, on line 6411, and Leipzig Nord in both directions.  The southbound connection, in particular, follows a separate alignment of its own. The only ''S-Bahn'' trains to use the southern end of line 6411 are ''S5/S5X'' services to and from the Leipzig/Halle Flughafen line.

This part of the original rail route from Berlin to Dresden links Falkenberg with the Leipzig – Dresden main line near Riesa. The local passenger service has been withdrawn, but when there is engineering work on the main line to/from Berlin via Elsterwerda, all ''EC'', ''EN'' and ''IC'' trains between Berlin and Dresden are diverted by this route. This was the case during most of 2016 and 2017 and on certain dates in spring 2018. Further occasional diversions may occur in future.

This occurred frequently in the last few years while the main line was upgraded. Although the upgrade has now been completed, further occasional diversions may occur in future.

EC/IC trains between Dresden and Berlin run direct via this route, except when engineering work causes diversions via route DE19/333. RB and RE trains between Dresden and Elsterwerda run via Priestewitz and Großenhain Cottbuser Bf.

Dresden-Plauen (Abzw Freital Ost) - Tharandt

[510, 510.3] (72D4-72C4) DE19/310

A single-track goods line runs to the north of the main line, and at lower level, between Freital Ost and Tharandt. At Freital-Hainsberg it is on the far side of the narrow-gauge station and yard from the main line. It is used by all westbound trains not stopping between Dresden Hbf and Tharandt.

This side of the triangle is used by Vogtlandbahn trains which run between Zwickau Zentrum and Adorf (Vogtl), Bad Brambach or Cheb via reversal at Werdau, generally every hour.

Obscure services: Lines used on an occasional basis for engineering work diversions

Kyhna (Delitzsch Gbf) - Zschortau (Delitzsch Abzw Ah)

[501.2, 501.9] (58B2) DE19/331

This west to south curve connects the Halle (Saale) – Eilenburg and Leipzig – Bitterfeld lines. It provides an alternative route between Leipzig and Halle, but has been little-used since the opening of the main line via the airport.

It was used for a period in summer 2018 by S4 services between [Leipzig Hbf (tief) -] Leipzig Nord and Eilenburg, reversing at Delitzsch Gbf.

Horka - Bielawa Dolna (PL) [- Wegliniec]

(61B3-61C3) DE19/332

The weekend trains between Berlin and Wrócław have occasionally been diverted via this recently electrified and reopened freight cross-border line in the last two years. Further use is expected in 2019. Reissued PKP PDF 260 dated 28 December 2018 shows this in use by one service. Note Interrail tickets etc are not valid on these services.

A FO P5834 Wrócław Główny - 20:16 Legnica – Berlin Lichtenberg

Note A: 25 January - 8 March 2019 FO

Falkenberg (Elster) – Glaubitz (b Riesa) (Abzw. Zeithain Bogendreieck)

(59C1-59C3) DE19/333 [The northern part of this route is in Land Brandenburg]

This part of the original rail route from Berlin to Dresden links Falkenberg with the Leipzig – Dresden main line near Riesa. The local passenger service was withdrawn in 2004, but when there is engineering work on the main line to/from Berlin via Elsterwerda, all EC, EN and IC trains between Berlin and Dresden are diverted by this route. This occurred frequently in the last few years while the main line was upgraded. Although the upgrade has now been completed, further occasional diversions may occur in future.

Taucha (b. Leipzig) (Leipzig-Heiterblick) - Leipzig-Stötteritz (Leipzig-Schönefeld)

[209.43] (131B3) DE19/334

This line links the Eilenburg line with the route to Leipzig Hbf (tief) or Markkleeberg via Leipzig-Stötteritz. It is used when the usual route to Leipzig Hbf via Leipzig-Thekla is unavailable. RE10 services between Cottbus, Eilenburg and Leipzig ran this way between 28 June and 7 July 2018 as they were diverted to/from Leipzig-Stötteritz instead of Hbf.
