 [Frankfurt (Oder) -] Frankfurt Oderbrücke - Slubice [- Rzepin] (electrified)
EuroCity services are hauled by dual-system electric locomotives or diesel locomotives between Berlin and Rzepin. In winter 2008 this fleet was extended by three 186.1, leased from AngelTrains, which run through.
Recently PKP worked freight to and from Frankfurt Oderbrücke where DB and PKP electric locomotives needed to be changed. Since spring 2008 at least a couple of services towards Berlin are operated by PKP class EU 43, also 186.1 leased from AngelTrains. A homologation of Railion's class 189 for Poland is still expected. Since July 2007 CTL works nonstop trains without change of locos. Various TOCs work to Frankfurt/Oder only.
