Athens was in a big chaos. Tons of garbages in the street, lot of rats, no public transportation at all excepted some army trucks. The riot police was using tear gas againt demonstrators on Omonia square and there was no light in the streets. Fortunatly this little train was still running, totaly packed but free! Anyway people were very friendly despite those very bad times they had.

@ovem:
I mean if you have a look on your really good plan people who don't know many of athens wont know that the main station of athens is larissis...maybe they ask where are the bounds of the area of athens and e.g. some other municipals...haha is sounds maybe a bit stupid

i didnt ride yet with this MAN trains, but i saw some videos on youtube and they look really nice, also the interior. But i prefer the Desiros or the GTW-Railbusses.

I know the legend, but Nomismatokopio was for 2007!

When is it going to be opened?

Just checked the ametro.gr. It gives a Nomismatokopio date of 2008/09.

How come the lines that look relatively modern have wooden sleepers underneath the track?

You can get from Nomismatokopeio to Ethniki Amyna metro station on a short bus ride (about 2 kms). From there downtown Athens is only a few minutesĺ ride by metro.

Wooden sleepers are only used in line 1. This is a very old line and was only recently refurbished for the Olympics. Unfortunately that refurbishment did not include the tracks. This is scheduled to happen in the near future and will cut travel time between Piraeus and Kifissia by a few minutes (now it is about 55 minutes). Just to get an idea what line 1 looked like, this is a photo from 1992 (not taken by me):



You can see the old rolling stock as well as the horrible platform. Line 1 only became noteworthy in 2004 when refurbishment works were completed. That incited me to create the following thread, with my pictures:

Thanks

I was under the impression that the entire Athen's Metro was built before the Olympics...

There is already a minor change in the above map: The future terminal station of line 3 in Pireaus, Evaggelistria, has been scrapped, due to protests by Piraeus Metropolis. The line will probably stop at Dimotiko Theatro.

Nevertheless the map is useful for another reason: If you look at the scale you realize how big Athens metro area is. That short line corresponds to 5 kms!
