    It's an iternational through car, that's why Ekspress-3 may have
    problems with it. It used to go via Tiraspol and was attached to the
    Odessa - Przemysl/Warszawa group of cars. After the Transnistria
    blockade it is routed via Ochnita. It goes to Warsaw on even-numbered
    days, on odd-numbered only to Przemysl.

    the dark-green car is the CFM sleeper Chisinau-Warszawa,

    No souch service any more for many years...

    then follows
    the Odessa-Warszawa UZ sleeper and then PKP cars from Przemysl Glowny.

    I read CFM regional & "suburban" passenger service is to be stopped
    on 12th this mont, and I guess, for pandemia reasons, there is no international service at the moment (quite sure concerning from/via Ukraine, not that sure from Romania).

    CFM was said to have failed to pay their employees in a way avoiding delays
    of a couple of months. Also, on domestic services, the percentage of non- railwayman-travellers was said to be low.

    To all that, add pandemia.
