Greek Railways – a postscript


A map showing part of the Greek railway network as it was in 1983

Shortly after we posted our article on the end of international services by Greek railways we came across a post by Paul Tramheer on the forum about a tour of Greek railways before they suffered their first round of cuts. The map above shows part of the railway network that existed in 1983 and the lines that were visited. The black line running vertically is the standard gauge line to Thessaloniki with onward connections to Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Turkey. The yellow lines show the metre gauge lines that were visited.
