Map for this day

Please note: the definitive timetable for #CrossBorderRail 2023 is always the one in the Google Sheet. The full route map is on umap here.

On this day I will head south east from Berlin, and first investigate three dismantled lines near Weißwasser / Bad Muskau. There is little hope any of these will be re-activated, but for the sake of completeness of my project I want to go and have a look! Then I will finish at the border crossing at Horka – a double track electrified line, but currently only used by freight trains. I wonder if night trains could be run here? Anyway, I will find out! And then I route back to Berlin via Hoyerswerda because I have never taken that route.
