This is at Kineta: the metre gauge line joins the new line and it becomes dual gauge until Kakia Skala.

Thanks ALCoGMNάνι!

I was also lucky to find a graffiti-free (well, at least on the other side :wink: ) GTW 2/6, a gift to you :-D (you might have seen it already in the Chat-window)

The same unit in Kyparissia a bit earlier:

Btw, I think Egio port is one of the finest places along the Peloponnese railways :-D

OK, replaced the images with ones of 'legal size', just wondering why the size limit isn't mentioned in "Forum Terms of use – Rules and conditions" :-? . There are only size limits for avatar and signature images! :roll:

The line between Tripolis-Zeygolatio is still reconstacting
The lane Kavasila-Kyllini is closed since 1995,and to Loutra since 1967
and Lefktron-Megalopolis is closed for trains since 1979[it was running by buses ordered by OSE until 1990]

Are you saying 1352 leaves RS Kiparissia 11 minutes earlier than is given in the TrainOSE on-line timetable, otherwise the schedule of 1351/1352 looks the same, right?

But why are you telling this, are the busses from/to Tripolis stopping at RS Zeygolation or why is this relevant? Anyway, that would be a nice because then it would be possible get directly from Zeygolation to Kalo Nero without going to Kalamata! :-D :mrgreen:

Levente, please, also note that there are no trains between Kiato - Patras (or is it now Kiato - Diakofto?), only replacement buses. :-(

I think there are not at the moment timetables that give all the stations and halts where the train stops; there used to be such a timetable on the OSE main website but isn't any more. Andravída is a railway halt; the 'ordinary' trains (the ones with 4-digit train numbers) should stop also there. Gastoúni is a railway station, even IC trains might stop there but I'm not sure.

In fact, last spring e.g. IC20 made a stop at Andravída, Gastoúni and Kavassila! Now the running time is a bit faster, some stops might have been excluded. Anyway, Peloponnese IC trains make, or at least used to make, surprisingly frequent stops, typically serving all municipal centers.

I'm a bit lost! Do you mean no connection between Tripolis-Kalamata with OSE buses?

Remember, you gave me the timetable of Tripolis-Kalamata buses in the chat! :wink:

OK, there are buses now, but do you think that there will be no train transport in the summer? I just can't believe that there's no demand for trains is Peloponnese. I got somehow the Kiato-Patra-Kalamata timetable and I found only ONE direct train between Kiato and Kalamata, leaving Kiato at 07:37 and arriving to Kalamata at 13:21. Can you confirm that?

By the way, how far is Kalonero to Kyparissia? One trains per day is so incredible, maybe I will go by feet. :-?

And my last question: is there any railway line where the GANZ-MÁVAG trains are still in operation?


Thnak you!

No, there won't be, because they are building the standard gauge railway from Kiato towards Patras and the existing narrow gauge line has been cut in several places.

Yes, that's true, only the IC20/IC23 pair of trains. When the Kiato-Patras line was closed last autumn, services South of Patras were also heavily reduced!

About 5 km. Btw, Kalo Nero is a very nice small village with a huge beach and a couple of hotels and tavernas :-D

No! But a number of unused GANZ-MÁVAG units along the network :mrgreen:
