Coal train running

The third, unelectrified, track that runs through Jeziorki, is a freight-only line linking the goods siding at Warszawa Okecie with the power station at Siekierki. Trains using this privately-run line take wagons full of coal one way and return empty the other. In summer, the coal trains tend to be short; in winter they are up to 40 laden wagons, pulled by more powerful locomotives.
