Well, Cologne has the well-known problems with its subsoil, so don't expect much luxury. All the money is going to that tunnel downtown!

Here is a recent video from Kerameikos station:



And one of the new Rotem trainsets in motion:

So far I have not been successful in persuading Attiko Metro SA or Rotem in getting the technical drawings for the Metro first/second generation stock, as I am hoping to build a computer model of it soon.

It'll be a nice project because I an more than 1,000 miles away from the Greek capital, so I'd make the request known so hopefully other members can chase it up. Thanks!

More 3rd Generation train testing from panakosXX of YouTube:

Note: The uploader disabled embedding.

I wonder if he can help out on recording a complete cab ride on line 2 using the 1st generation train? That's on my wishlist.

If you watch this video:



you'll notice on 3:06 that stations are marked with LEDs that will light up when the trains reach the corresponding station. Line 1 has no LEDs, which means that the new train sets are not scheduled to run on that line. Also the part of line 3 between Planentias and the airport has no LEDs, which is expected, since the new train sets only operate on 750 VDC. The surprise is that the maps include the 6 stations of Piraeus extension, which will not be available until 2017 (probably 2-3 years later).

Fourth instalment of the new train testing by panakosXX: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3oHVN0qiUV0

Now, I'm getting confused about the stations and the service patterns on the Proastiakos because I want to make an updated map of it. What is the current situation?

Today, Friday 26 July 2013, four new stations opened in Athens and line 2 was thus extended to the south.
