Other small signs by the hour of dep./arr. on the timetable are explained in the bottom of timetable in... Polish :-(. You can try to understand them, they usually refers to 2 factors:
A. when, which days the train goes or doesn't go;
B. info that the train contains only seats with obligatory reservation (= you must buy "miejscowka" - reservation for the seat)
Some common explanations on timetables:
- (train) goes in... (KURSUJE W...)
- (train) doesn't go in... (NIE KURSUJE W...)
- (train) goes only in... (KURSUJE TYLKO W...)
- 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 - days of a week from Monday (1) to Sunday (7)
- and = "i"
- (train) goes only in week days =Mon to Fri (KURSUJE TYLKO W DNI ROBOCZE)
- (train) goes everyday instead of... (KURSUJE CODZIENNIE OPROCZ...)
- (train) doesn't go on holidays and on Sundays: NIE KURSUJE W NIEDZIELE I SWIETA
- notice the specific mode of writing dates (not always) using roman numbers to sign months: 1.II. = 1st Feb; 5.V. = 5th May; 10.XII. = 10 Dec.
Roman numbers (1-12): I,II,III,IV,V,VI,VII,VIII,IX,X,XI,XII
A few examples:
a. NIE KURSUJE 24.XII, 1.I i 1.V.
c. NIE KURSUJE W 2,3,4
OK, try to understand above yourself :-).
