Μόνο οι σταθμοί πέρασαν ένα lifting.Οι γραμμές,και η ρευματοδοσία και η σηματοδότηση,δεν άλλαξαν.Αυτό το καθιστά ποιο αργό από το μετρό.

Hlektrikos was just a suburban rail before. Later upgrated to the metro level. Like how Marmaray will be, or Ankara suburban will be, or Izmir's Airport-Aliağa line will be... Nothing different.

wonderful picture... It seems there is a huge progress at the construction although it is slow a little bit!

But where is the railway bridge?
