Someone post a June/July photo of the new logisitcs park and intermodal terminal in Athens please.

Despite the size of this development, I've not been able to find a web site dedicated to it. Does anyone know if one exists?

I send to OSE an e-mail 1-2 months ago telling them that are rumors that the Tombazis plan will not implemented, still no answer from OSE.

Sadly as i can see from your photo and this mediocre (to say the least!) roof, the Tombazis plan abandoned

Shame for the government who support this kind organizations.

shortly from wikipedia:

The Argentine railway network comprised 47,000 km of track at the end of the Second World War and was, in its time, one of the most extensive and prosperous in South America. However, with the increase in highway construction and the break-up in 1993 of Ferrocarriles Argentinos (FA), the state railroad corporation, there followed a sharp decline in railway profitability. Since that time several private and provincial railway companies have been created and have resurrected some of the major passenger routes that FA once operated. The railroad network today, with its 34,059 km of track,[1] is now far smaller than it once was.

Larissa Train Station Progress - Tombazis Roof

Not sure about the Tombazis designed station design but they are working on the foundation in the Pireaus end of the new platforms for some huge pillars that may be either to hold up the large span roof from the design or a very large pedestrian bridge. I will try and get a photo of these pillars now underconstruction....

Larissa Train Station Progress - Tombazis Roof

Someone asked this question last week. These may be the start of foundation for the Tombazis roof designed for the Athens Larissa Train Station

The following 3 photos of the pillar foundations may be the ones shown in the left hand side of this architectural model by Tombazis office.

Athens Metro to the airport opens on Monday


It was reported today in two Local papers that the Athens metro will open to the Airport after 6 months and 2 weeks of closer. The new Nomismatokopio station will also come online in the morning of the 31st of August 2009.

I really have no idea what you're talking about. Maybe there's no pictures of trains in this thread? (I didn't read the entire thread) Maybe you've only seen pictures of train tracks, and came to this conclusion?

Here's a synopsis of trains on the country:

The first one is probably what you mean by "actual trains"?

These are the long-distance intercity trains that run from Athens to northern Greece, as well as within northern Greece, and from Thessaloniki to international destinations (Istanbul, Sofia, Bucharest, Budapest, etc). It' the same conventional-speed train you see across Europe for intercity long distance travel.


Other trains:

Prostiakos
The regional trains that connect the cities of Athens and Thessaloniki to their distant suburbs and greater regions


Proastiakos (regional train) and conventional long-distance trains sharing track (the first train that passes is Proastiakos, and the other two are long-distance conventional trains):


Short-distance intercity trains (being phased out by Proastiakos on some routes, for example Athens-Patra will be served by Proastiakos in thenear future):


And then there's urban heavy rail:

The Attiko Metro (Athens Subway/heavy rail)


And urban light rail:

Athens Tram


Scenic/historic trains:


Not sure what else you're looking for.

Well, Greece's train network was never as extensive as Argentina's, but there is a similarity: Greece has some very busy routes (Athens-Patra, Athens-Thessaloniki), and some routes that don't do too well (Athens-Nafplio, for example). The busy corridor routes (Parta-Athens-Larisa-Thessaloniki along which the vast majority of the population lives) are currently priority and receiving the most attention, although lesser peripheral routes are getting upgraded too to an extent. I'm not sure why you're afraid that OSE will be privatized like Argentina's Ferrocarriles Argentinos. It doesn't look like OSE will be privatized and broken up. OSE has closed unprofitable routes itself, although I'd like to see some new routes and new tracks in the future with the new construction technology that exists nowadays, the same that helped to build Egnatia Odos motorway. With upgraded service, OSE may not get everyone out of their cars, but it will certainly be a good option for many people who would otherwise take the car, as well as take over the services that KTEL currently provides for long distances (like Athens-Ioannina, for example, or Athens-Igoumenitsa/Corfu, or Herakio-Chania, etc). So, we know demand is there, and KTEL can be transformed into a local -rather than long-distance- service, as well as a feeder service for OSE. Of course, rail thrives in densely-populated areas, and the country is not too densely populated outside the Patra-Athens-Larisa-Thessaloniki corridor.
