Railway station Pyrgos
In 1883, the first railway line in the Peloponnese was delivered in operation, i.e. the Pyrgos-Katakolo Railway (S.P.K.). In 1890, the S.P.A.P. line also reached the city, connecting Pyrgos with the rest of the Peloponnese, and the current station was con-structed as a result.
Railway station Corinth
In 1884, the section Piraeus-Corinth (metric line) was complet-ed, as well as the construction of the station for the S.P.A.P. Later on, the city was connected with Patras and Pyrgos, as well as with Argos, Tripoli and Kalamata. Since 2005, a new Corinth R.S. is in operation, connecting Athens with Kiato and Aigio, through a new standard HSRL (High Speed Railway Line).
Railway station Athens
The “Larissa Station” in Athens was established with the con-struction of the Piraeus-Demerli-Synoron line, or “Larissaykos”, in 1904, connecting Piraeus and Athens with Larissa and the -then- Greek-Turkish borders. Parallel to that, the S.P.A.P.'s “Peloponnese Station” in Athens has been constructed earlier, in 1884, connecting Piraeus and Athens with the Peloponnese until 2005. Currently, a project for the renovation and develop-ment of the -now joint- station is in progress.
Railway station Lianokladi
Lianokladi is located along the “Larissaykos” line, between two mountainous sections, where some of the most important engi-neering structures were constructed. The line was involved in the most important sabotages that occurred during the German Occupation (explosion of the bridges in Gorgopotamos, As-sopos, Papadia; Kournovo sabotage, etc.).
Railway station Volos
A 1st Class Station of the Thessaly Railways, perhaps the most beautiful station in the network. It was the main station of the Thessaly Railways and the only location along the Greek net-work with all three different line gauges: standard 1.435m (La-rissa-Volos), metric 1m (Volos-Kalambaka) and narrow Decau-ville 0.6m (Volos-Milies).
Railway station Larissa
In the city of Larissa there were two stations: one serving the Thessaly Railways (Volos-Larissa) and one serving the “Laris-saykos” railway (Piraeus-Larissa-Papapouli). After the 1957 earthquake, a new joint station was constructed, inaugurated in 1962.
Railway station Edessa
One of the main stations of the former Thessaloniki-Monastiri railway (Th.M.) and currently located along the Thessaloniki-Florina (Th.-Fl.) axis.
Railway station Thessaloniki
The new Thessaloniki Passenger Station (NESTH) united the city’s passenger operation which till then was served by two separate stations, one for the Eastern Railways and one for the Thessaloniki-Constantinople Connecting Railway. Its construc-tion started in 1937 and was completed in 1967, while it was gradually delivered in operation as of 1951.
Railway station Eidomeni
Initially a station of the Eastern Railways (A.S.), it is currently the main frontier station serving international freight and pas-senger trains.
Railway station Drama
One of the main stations of the former Thessaloniki-Constantinople Connecting Railway (E.Th.K., 1896) and cur-rently located along the Thessaloniki-Alexandroupoli (Th.-A.) axis.
Railway station Alexandroupoli
The current Alexandroupoli-”Limenas” station was established in the 1950s to unite the city’s passenger operation, which till then was served by two stations: the Central “French” station constructed by the Eastern Railways (1874) for the Alexan-droupoli-Ormenio line and the “Poleos” Station of the Thessa-loniki-Constantinople Connecting Railway, connecting the city with Thessaloniki.
In 1896, the construction of a 22km line was completed, from Diakopto to Kalavryta, crossing the Vouraikos Gorge. The installation of the Abt rack allowed the train to “climb up” Helmos, with gradients up to 145‰. This is the only rack railway in Greece and one of the most impressive ones worldwide.
This section, metric gauge, connects the Katakolo port with Pyrgos and the archaeo-logical site of Olympia.
The Tithorea-Lianokladi mountainous line of the “Larissaykos” Railway operated dur-ing the period 1904-1905 and played a key part in both World Wars. It includes some of the most historical engineering structures of the Greek network, such as the bridg-es of Papadia, Assopos and Gorgopotamos, as well as the 2km Bralos tunnel.
The “Pelion Train”, or the “Moutzouris” line, was part of the Thessaly Railways. The project, with the Italian engineer Evaristo de Chirico in charge, was inaugurated in 1895, in order to connect Volos with Milies through a mountainous route, and included significant engineering structures, such as the “De Chirico Bridge”.
Railway station Nafplio
S.P.A.P. Station. It was constructed in 1885, as part of the 1882 contract for the construction of the railway line between Piraeus-Patras, Corinth-Nafplio and Argos-Myloi. The Nafplio line was delivered into operation in 1886. In the early 1990s, the new city station was created close to the port. Its operation was suspended in 2011, together with the railway line Corinth-Argos-Nafplio, and it is scheduled for reoperation in 2022.
Railway station Patras
In the Ag. Dionyssios area, in Patras, there was the terminal station for the section Piraeus-Athens-Patras (one of the first railway lines of the Piraeus-Athens-Peloponnese Railways (S.P.A.P.)), which was completed in 1887. In the same period, the Agios Andreas station was constructed, from which a new line started, to connect the city with Pyrgos, in 1890. In 1892, a line connecting the two stations was constructed, while since 1954 there is a fully operational central passenger station, next to the city's port. Since 2010, it operates as a station of the Patras Suburban Railway, which currently connects the city with Lower Achaia and Rio.
Railway station Kalamata
The Kalamata station was constructed in 1892, for the Greek Southern Railways Company (E.M.S.E.) to operate the line Myloi – Kalamata (Μ-Κ), which was finally undertaken by the S.P.A.P. It had two stations (urban and coastal) and an independent depot. Its operation, as well as that of the line, was suspended in 2011. Nowadays, the coastal station has become a railway park.
Railway station Tripoli
The Tripoli station in the line Myloi – Kalamata (S.M.K.) was constructed for the Greek Southern Railways Company (E.M.S.E.). Its operation was finally undertaken by the S.P.A.P. Company and the line started to be delivered in operation in 1892, when the station was actually inaugurated. It was classified among the central stations of the Peloponnese, greatly contributed to commercial activities and became a station serving the overall southern axis of Greece. Its complex included, among other things, a goods warehouse, a depot, a revolving slab, a turning triangle, etc.
Railway station Airport
The Airport Station was constructed in 2004, in order to connect the new Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos with Piraeus, Athens and the rest of Attica. It is served both by the Athens Suburban Railway as well as the Athens Metro-Line 3.
Railway station Piraeus
Piraeus was the first area on the Greek territory to obtain a railway, S.A.P., the predecessor of today’s “Ilektrikos” (Electrical Railway), in 1869. Twelve years later, it became the starting point for the Piraeus-Athens-Peloponnese Railways (S.P.A.P.) at a new –nearby- station. In 1903, another station was constructed in the Agios Dionyssios area, this time for the Piraeus-Demerli-Sinoron Railway (S.P.D.S.) or “Larissaykos”. The S.P.A.P. railway station (afterwards S.E.K.-D.P.P. and OSE), which served the transport load between Piraeus and the Peloponnese, shut down in 2005. Then, this metric line became standard gauge and the station was reconstructed. After eliminating the Agios Dionyssios station, this is the only OSE station in Piraeus, used as the starting point for the Suburban Railway.
Railway station Aspropyrgos
The Aspropyrgos Railway Station, at the foot of Thriassio Pedio, constitutes OSE’s main railway freight center and a terminal station for containers in Attica. It has been in operation since 2006 and is located along the railway line Airport–Kiato. The old station on the metric line Piraeus–Patras of the former S.P.A.P. is located south of the current station, within the city of Aspropyrgos.
Railway station Aigio
A S.P.A.P. Station, part of the first line (Piraeus-Athens-Patras (P.A.P.)) which was inaugurated in 1887 at the coastal front of the city. In 2010, the section Diakopto-Ag. Vassilios was eliminated, while in 2020 the section Kiato-Aigio of the new High Speed Railway Line (HSRL) was inaugurated, which reconnects Athens with Patras and includes a new station at the southesatern end of the city.
Railway station Oinoi
A 2nd Class Station of the “Larissaykos” railway. The station started to operate in 1904. It is located on the line Piraeus–Platy of the Athens-Thessaloniki axis, and it is the starting point for one of its two branches: Oinoi - Chalkida.
Railway station Katerini
“Katerinas” station, as it was formerly called, opened up in 1916, when the connecting branch Papapouli-Platy was completed, which connected the Piraeus-Demerli-Sinoron Railway (S.P.D.S.) or “Larissaykos” with the Macedonia-Thrace network. From 1939 and for approximately 65 years, this station hosted the sleeper impregnation yard of the S.E.K.
Platy was the meeting point between the “Larissaykos” Railway and the Macedonia-Thrace network, after the construction of the connecting branch Papapouli-Platy in 1916. The station had been constructed 25 years beforehand, to serve the Thessaloniki-Monastiri Railway.
The Palaiofarsalos station (Demerli) was created in 1908 and became the meeting point between the metric line of the Thessaly Railways (S.Th.) and the standard line of the Piraeus-Demerli-Sinoron Railway (S.P.D.S.) or “Larissaykos”. Nowadays, it is one of the stations along the Athens-Thessaloniki axis and the starting point for the Paleofarsalos-Kalambaka line.
Railway station Kalambaka
Kalambaka was the first terminal station of the Thessaly Railways (S.Th.) metric line, with Volos as the starting point. The Kalambaka station opened in 1886. The line section Palaiofarsalos-Kalambaka was renovated in order to become a standard gauge line and improve alignment in 1998.
Railway station Lamia
In 1892, the English company Eckersley, Godfrey & Liddelow (EG&L) undertook the construction of the line for the Piraeus-Demerli-Sinoron Railway (S.P.D.S.) or “Larissaykos”. The works started from the line that would later constitute the Lianokladi-Stylida branch of P.D.S. (in early 1893, the section Agia Marina-Lamia-Beki (current Stavros)) was completed. The completion of the line by Batignolles in 1906 and the initial operation of this section was followed by the operation of Lamia station.
Railway station Chalkida
A 1st Class Station for the Piraeus-Demerli-Sinoron Railway (S.P.D.S.) or “Larissaykos” and a terminal station for the Oinoi-Chalkida branch (one of the two branches existing on this line). Its construction started after establishing the Greek Railways Company (Ε.Ε.S.) which was operating the P.D.S. Railway and was inaugurated in 1904. In 2006, the station reconstruction began, as part of modernizing the Athens Suburban Railway.
Railway station Florina
The city of Florina was initially served by the railway with the current Messonissi Station of the Thessaloniki-Monastiri (SM) railway, which was actually named after Florina. In the 1930s, the S.E.K. constructed a new line (branch) from Messonissi to the city of Florina.
Railway station Amyntaio
It is located along the line of the former Thessaloniki-Monastiri (SM) Railway and the current Thessaloniki-Florina line. It is also the starting point for the line Amyntaio-Kozani, constructed by S.E.K.’s New Projects Directorate in 1955.
Railway station Kozani
Already in the 1920s, the construction of a standard gauge line, which would connect Kalambaka with Veroia, had progressed, but it was never completed. Finally, in 1955, the S.E.K.’s New Projects Directorate completed the construction of the line Amyntaio-Kozani, which was critical for the industry in the area. The Kozani Station was inaugurated that same year. The line Amyntaio-Kozani is a branch of the current line Thessaloniki-Florina. Its operation was suspended in 2010.
Railway station Veroia
The Veroia Station was one of the 15 stations along the line Thessaloniki-Monastiri (current Bitola). Its construction was completed in 1894 by the French company Société du Chemin de fer ottoman Salonique - Monastir (SM). The station building is located 3 km from the city center and has been preserved in its initial form.
Railway station Polykastro
The Polykastro Station was a critical part along the line Thessaloniki-Gevgeli of the Eastern Railways / Chemin de fer Orientaux (CO) (1873), being the terminal station, since 1896, for the line of the Thessaloniki Connecting Railway / Jonction Salonique - Constantinople (JSC) before the construction of the section Thessaloniki-Kalindria. Nowadays, it is part of the line Thessaloniki-Eidomeni (Th-E).
