A pair of summer only Przemyśl Główny - Kołobrzeg overnights were shown in the December 2019 PDFs as running this way but were later re-routed to call at Częstochowa Stradom therefore no scheduled use in 2020. The last booked use of this 48.3km line was in 2016 by a one day only pair of Turkol operated pilgrimage specials. Note that from the grade separated junction at podg Wyczerpy north of Częstochowa the lines remain apart and on significantly different vertical alignments for 3 km as far as Rząsawa.

Jarocin is a split station with a sizeable yard south of the platforms.
  
a. There is one through Gniezno - Jarocin - Krotoszyn pair which are the only services using the 1.6 km link south from the east side Peron 3 running on the east side of the yard, all other Krotoszyn services are to/from Poznań using connecting line 826 to/from the west side Perons 1 & 2. They are KW77424 from Gniezno arriving Jarocin 11:23 and KW77461 ex Krotoszyn arriving Jarocin 16:03
+
All Krotoszyn services to/from Poznań use connecting line 826 to/from west side platfroms 1 & 2, so this is no longer an obscure route.  
  
b. there is a connecting line 983 from the north end of west side Perons 1 & 2 to reach T321 towards Gniezno which for an unknown period in 2019 was used by one service but none are shown on the Peron sheets for 2020. From west side Peron 3 to line 983 junction with 321 is about 600 m.
+
All services on the reinstated service to Gniezno normally terminate or start from platform 3 on the east side of Jarocin station, but a 600 metre connectimg line (line 983) allows trains to run into west side platforms 1-2. There was a service shown over this connecting line in part of 2019, but none in 2020 and none are shown in the 2020-2021 timetable period to March 2021.
  
===(Domanin -) p.odg. Hanulin – Kępno (low level) (– Wielun)===

Kępno is a two level station. The Poznań - Ostrów - Kluczbork line has high level platforms at right angles to those of the low level Herby Nowe line. There are two north-to-east curves between the two lines and for some years all services to/from Ostrów Wielkopolski starting or terminating at Kępno have used the 1.8km outside curve (Line 812) to/from the low level platforms. These can be found in the station [https://portalpasazera.pl/en/Plakaty platform arrival/departure sheets] using Peron II or the table 320 timetable PDF shows Kępno separately in italics at the top or bottom of the table (depending on direction) for starting or terminating trains. The inside curve bypasses all platforms and is an entry in Lines used on an occasional basis.

[315, 405] (ERA176C4; D6) PL21/312

Note there are two routes between line 131 and Inowrocław station. The usual route is the ground level line 742 to/from the south side of 405 with an alternative of continuing on line 131 onto the Inowrocław avoiding line flying over the Poznań main line, and the connection to/from podg Mimowolo and Inowrocław Towawory.

Map view showed all four summer 2020 services booked via line 742. In previous years a March 2018 traveller advised services calling at Inowrocław but not at Inowrocław Rabinek used the alternative and Map view in the Journey planner correctly showed its Line 131 routing.

Use of this route in 2021 is likely to be by summer holiday trains.

[340] (ERA180C1, R10 & D4) PL21/313B

This combination of freight lines around Poznań indicated by < markers at Poznań Podolany & Poznań Strzeszyn allows trains from the north (Piła direction) to use the Poznań freight ring through Poznań Franowo yard to enter Poznań Główny from the south.Local sources suggest all diversions in 2020 and onwards must use the lines on the north side at Poznań Franowo yard. In previous years eastbound diversions ran via via line 823 on the far south of the Yard and the flyover route to podg Stary Mlyn. Normally used only by Turkol steam circles, 2020 saw use for two months by an overnight Bohumin [ČD] to Kołobrzeg train pair. No use in 2020-2021.

Poznań Gorczyn – Line 801 - Poznań Dębina - [Poznań Starołęka]

[300a/320] (ERA180C1, R10&D4) PL21/313C

This route is used by trains from Frankfurt (Oder) and Zbąszynek to avoid Poznań Główny and proceed directly towards either Jarocin or routes through Franowo goods yard. It is indicated by trains appearing in table 320 and may be used with a reversal at Poznań Starolęka to reach Poznań Glowny. There is a map showing this route in Lines used on an occasional basis below entry PL20/321.

Jarocin

[321] (ERA176B2 not shown, E5) PL21/314

Jarocin is a split station with a sizeable yard south of the platforms.

All Krotoszyn services to/from Poznań use connecting line 826 to/from west side platfroms 1 & 2, so this is no longer an obscure route.

All services on the reinstated service to Gniezno normally terminate or start from platform 3 on the east side of Jarocin station, but a 600 metre connectimg line (line 983) allows trains to run into west side platforms 1-2. There was a service shown over this connecting line in part of 2019, but none in 2020 and none are shown in the 2020-2021 timetable period to March 2021.

The line from the east side platforms at Jarocin to the junction with line 826 (about 1.6km) is used by only one train pair on weekdays in the 2020-2021 timetable.

[320/322] (ERA181C1, F6) PL21/315

Kępno is a two level station. The Poznań - Ostrów - Kluczbork line has high level platforms at right angles to those of the low level Herby Nowe line. There are two north-to-east curves between the two lines and for some years all services to/from Ostrów Wielkopolski starting or terminating at Kępno have used the 1.8km outside curve (Line 812) to/from the low level platforms. These can be found in the station platform arrival/departure sheets using Peron II or the table 320 timetable PDF shows Kępno separately in italics at the top or bottom of the table (depending on direction) for starting or terminating trains. The inside curve bypasses all platforms and is an entry in Lines used on an occasional basis. The following IC services also use the outside curve (line 812) and additionally, as shown in timetable 322, are the only services between Wieluń Dąbrowa and Kepno.

[334, 355] (ERA175B2 partially shown, E2 partially shown) PL21/316

Almost all trains between Zielona Góra and Sulechów (- Zbąszynek) avoid Czerwieńsk by the south <=> east avoiding curve (podg Czerwieńsk Południe - podg Czerwieńsk Wschodnia) opened on 9 June 2013. A small number of services still use the old line from the avoiding curve east junction to Czerwieńsk station which crosses underneath the Zielona Góra line to the south side of the two-sided Czerwieńsk station. Additionally these services also use a significant connection to/from the Zielona Góra line at the east end of Czerwieńsk station. The 2020 services were suspended from 16 March until 30 August 2020 as the line through Sulechów was closed for engineering work and this continues for the 2020-2021 timetable period with trains replaced by buses.

Obscure services: Lines used on an occasional basis

Poznań Franowo and area

Poznań Franowo is a large marshalling yard and depot on the south freight ring around Poznań and the lines through the yard area provide an alternative to passing through Poznań Główny station. Use is normally because:-

  • Trains to/from the north wishing to avoid a reversal at Poznań Główny traverse through Poznań Franowo to/from the Warszawa and Inowrocław lines.
  • the lines from Poznań Główny to Swarzędz or Kobylnica are closed due to engineering work.
  • By Turkol steam excursions from Poznań Główny. Different options exist, but the most usual are ‘short’ circulars via Franowo and Poznań Wschód or ‘long’ circulars via Franowo and the northern freight ring to Kiekrz where they reverse. See Turkol
  • By Polish Woodstock specials to the festival site in Kostrzyn from the north and east and v.v. not calling at Poznań Główny

See PL20/313a/b/c entries above for 2020 scheduled use and this thumbnail for a map showing the lines likely to be used:-

Within the Franowo area any Turkol anticlockwise ‘long’ circuit services can take different routes, either Line 352 on the north side of the yard, or lines 823/824, a south side route from p.odg Pokrzywno and a flyover to p.odg Stary Młyn. Line 352 on the north side runs via platforms used by staff trains prior to their withdrawal in approx December 2006 and all westbound or clockwise Turkol charters must take this route.
