This south-to-west curve avoiding Koluszki is used by trains between Łódź and Piotrków Trybunalski/Częstochowa that do not call at Koluszki.
 (ERA182B3; F7 R15) PL19/107
An alternative to the main line between Częstochowa and Poraj. Line 703 is non-passenger which diverges at the north end of Częstochowa Towarowa (marshalling yard) and runs on the west side of the main line south of Częstochowa Raków where a temporary platform has been provided. It stays on the west side and climbs over the main line to join TT109 between Częstochowa Stradom and Koniecpol at podg Kucelinka. The non-passenger Line 155 to Poraj diverges here and note there is no connection at podg Kucelinka between Line 701 [Table 109], the passenger connection from Częstochowa, and Line 155; all trains using Line 155 must therefore use Line 703. Markers indicate use until December 2019 by the following services with others on limited dates as per a '<' symbol against Korwinów in table 102.

[Kielce] - Sitkowka Nowiny - Busko Zdroj
[ex 112] (ERA183A2/3, F9/G9) PL19/111
PR ran two pairs to this Spa Town at 2018 summer weekends over 43.5km of freight only track which closed to passenger services on 10 October 2004. Travellers advise these were very popular so it is assumed they will run again in 2019. For those wishing to visit the Town/Spa note the station is some way away, but the PR webpost advises a connecting bus will be laid on. The 2018 timings were:-

[Łódź –] Gałkówek – Mikołajów [– Tomaszów Mazowiecki]
[114/601] (ERA177C1, E8, R11) PL19/112
There are two possible routes between Łódź and Tomaszów Mazowiecki avoiding Koluszki - a direct double track line from Gałkówek via Żakowice Płd to Mikołajów used by more frequent express services or single track Line 537 via Słotwiny and Żakowice Połudnowie. Use of both routes is confirmed but limited services use Line 537 with calls at both Słotwiny and Żakowice Połudnowie as listed below. Note Interrail and PR Regional tickets are not valid on ŁKA trains.
Note no Żakowice Połudnowie station listing appears in either 114 or 601 PDF, but confirmation of calls and use of the route via line 537 would be confirmed in that station's departure sheet.

Kraków northern loop line: [Kraków Główny] - Kraków Batowice – podg Dłubnia – Kraków Nowa Huta – Podłęże
 (ERA171B5, R15) PL19/117
Diversions continue throughout 2018/19 TT period with "<" markers on table 120 between Kraków Główny and Podłęże. Note the east and westbound services may take different routes from the east end of Kraków Nowa Huta, plus to the west of Podłęże should use the flyover route eastbound and ground level route westbound. Any reports of travelling any other route at Kraków Nowa Huta apart from the longer loop on the north side would be appreciated by the Compilers.
There is also allegedly an ongoing workers' service via the above route to the closed PKP stations serving the steel works complex at Nowa Huta but no timings have been available since the 2008 working timetable. At that time the evening and weekend services were worked by a track maintenance draisine with very limited capacity.
(Przemyśl Główny –) Hurko – Medyka (– Mostys'ka 2)
 (ERA184B1, H12, R35) PL19/118
There are three routes between these points; from south to north they are:
- Line 91, a cross border 1435 mm gauge line which ends east of Mostys'ka 1 in Ukraine.
This is used between Przemyśl Główny and Medyka by the PKP local service shown in Table 122 and usually by the through Wroclaw - L'viv service.
- Line 989, a 1435 mm gauge line through the marshalling yards, re-joining Line 91 at Medyka.
No passenger services use this line. Note that page H12 of the "Atlas Linii Kolejowych Polski" is incorrect in showing passenger stations on this line; they are on Line 91 and the enlarged page R35 shows the situation correctly.
- Line 92, the 1520 mm gauge line into Ukraine.
This route is used by the daytime services between Kyiv/L'viv and Przemyśl Główny, and from 2017/18 the night service to/from Odessa, all operated by Ukrainian railways but no longer shown in PKP 122.
Up until the 2016/17 TT change it was believed Lines 91 and 92 were used on alternate days by the overnight L'viv/Lvov services, with either a manual gauge change at Przemyśl (with a longer stop) or an SUW2000 gauge change at Mostys'ka 2 (with a relatively short stop at Przemyśl). The gauge changer at Mostys'ka 2 was noted out of use as at October 2017 but an April 2018 traveller confirms his overnight L'viv/Lvov services used Line 91 and the Mostys'ka 2 gauge changer and Przemyśl Główny arrival/departure sheets confirm use of only standard gauge platforms.
This of course does not preclude use of the gauge changer at Przemyśl and further reports would be appreciated by the Compilers although the Beta version of the PKP Journey planner which can display a route map clearly shows the 2019 services booked via Line 91.

[126, 555] (ERA183C3, G11) PL19/119
This curve (line 565) is used by direct services between Lublin and Tarnobrzeg (- Rzeszow). They can be identified by a '<' symbol against Stalowa Wola Rozwadów in 126 and 555. No service from 11 March 2018 whilst the Lublin - Stalowa Wola line is closed for electrification.

Zagórz – Komańcza – Łupków
[131/134] (ERA186C4, 187A5, H11) PL19/124
A limited Bank Holiday and summer weekends service resumed from 11 June 2016. From Summer 2017 this was extended across the border to Medzilaborce in Slovakia and this continues in 2019 between 29 June and 1 September. In Summer 2017 SKPL ran an additional limited Mon-Fri service to Łupków.
 (ERA185B5, G8) PL19/125
All services between Kraków and Zakopane had to reverse at Sucha Beskidzka until an avoiding curve opened on 11 June 2017. Since then most trains run via the avoiding line, calling at the new station of Sucha Beskidzka Zamek. Use of the North to West and South to West curves can be identified by the train calling at Sucha Beskidzka. The South to West curve has fewer services than the North to West curve.
Kraków Plaszów – Kraków Bonarka (– Skawina)

[146, 151] (ERA188B3, R17) PL19/129
Westbound departures from Katowice platforms 1-4 towards Katowice Ligota can run either via the main line (line 139) or via a flyover (line 656) over the main line to Gliwice. From observation, all trains departing from platform 1 at Katowice appear to use this route.

Nędza Wieś – Kuźnia Raciborska (p.odg. Turze)
[153/160 not shown but in 154] (ERA188B1, G6) PL19/133
This east-to-north chord avoiding Nędza station is used by trains running direct between Kędzierzyn Koźle and Rybnik. Use is indicated by < markers at stations from Nędza to Chałupki in Table 160. From previous experience these should also use PL19/134.
Rybnik – Sumina
[153 not shown/154/160] (ERA188B1, G6, H6) PL19/134
There are two routes between Rybnik and Sumina: a direct line and a longer route via Rybnik Towarowy and Rydułtowy used by all local services. Use of the direct line by TLK services to/from Kędzierzyn-Koźle was previously indicated by a '<' symbol against the intermediate stations in table 153, but these trains now only appear in table 160 to/from 220 although a traveller in November 2017 confirms his train used the direct route plus the Sumina station avoiding line.
Therefore use by those services mentioned in PL19/133 is still highly likely. Reports of continued use by the services to/from Kędzierzyn-Koźle would be welcomed by the Compilers

Kędzierzyn-Koźle – p.odg. Stare Koźle – Kędzierzyn-Koźle Azoty
 (ERA181C2 too detailed to be shown, R14) PL19/137
There are three routes between Kędzierzyn-Koźle and p.odg. Stare Koźle. From east to west they are:
1. Line 709. This line is the normal passenger route. The 4 km single track line flies over the curves to the Gliwice line and runs via a staff halt at the PKP depot to Peron (platform) 1. It resumed use as the normal route for PR local trains with the June 2016 timetable change and is used by all services other than those mentioned below.
2. Line 151 (northbound). From a travellers July 2017 observation, the equivalent of the IC train below used a line initially heading east at podg. Stare Koźle before going underneath Lines 709 and 681 to run alongside southbound Line 151 on the west side of the yard to arrive in Kędzierzyn- Koźle Peron 4 to reverse to head towards Gliwice. This line at its divergence is not shown in the Mały Atlas.
|SuX||IC 4116||Racibórz - 06:51 Kuźnia Raciborska - Warszawa Centralna|
3. Line 151 (southbound). This runs on the west side of the yard (Kędzierzyn-Koźle KKD) up to 0.5 km away from Line 709. Services from Kędzierzyn-Koźle Peron (platform) IV towards Rybnik and Racibórz must use this route. The following services are shown in the December 2018 departure sheets: NJ74010 (00:26), TLK54103 (11:39), R64427 (16:51), R64433 (19:05), TLK64101 (19:54) and PR 64435 (21:02) .

PR Łódź sponsored the first passenger service on this branch since 1988 from 2014 which using the 2016 example were one pair SSuO between 9 July and 4 September. That year they were Free with just 75 places so needed to be pre-booked via website www.inowlodz.pl. Timings were Łodz Kaliska depart 08:35 Spała 10:11, returning at 17:56 to Łodz Kaliska 19:36.
