Beside the national connections to Poprad Tary and Lipnay (- Presov) also eight international passenger trains are worked between Plavec (Slovakia) and Muszyna (Poland) per day: two pairs Kosice - Cracow Glowny, one pair Plavec - Krynica and night-trains Budapest - Cracow.
Both networks are electrified at 3 kV DC, but due to different signalling systems locos are changed at Presov.

In contrast to Plavec - Muszyna the line between Lupkow (Poland) and Medzilaborce (Slovakia) lacks of catenary. International trains from Sanok (Poland) to Humenne and to Kosice pass the border stations surrounded by deep woods.
