Yes, Trenitalia already bought Trainose. I've found a Czech article, I recommend using google translate to find out the details :

That would be very hard to predict since they've just got their ownership of Trainose. But judging by their immense budget for investments, I think there will be serious changes in passenger and freight traffic to attract more passengers and new customers. Anyway, kudos for Trenitalia for attempting to save Trainose...in the race was also mentioned Russian Railways but they haven't submited a bid, making the Italians the only ones to eventually win the bid.

Now we can start dreaming of one day (maybe in another century) we may see high speed lines in Greece similar to those in Italy for routes like Athens-Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki-Istanbul, Thessaloniki-Sofia.

Athens - Thessaloniki is currently being upgraded to high speed standards. Most of the line has already been upgraded, actually.

Once completed, this line, together with the new Athens - Patra line (already in service up to Kiato) will form the backbone of the Greek railway network, wich will result in huge time savings compared to the present day situation.

Works are in an advanced stage in execution in both lines, so in the short term the country will have a pretty decent railway connection between its 3 largest cities. I mean, there's no need for additional high speed lines.

I know the situation in Greece, yes there is a lot of work going on but not towards real HSR. The new upgrades you are talking about are made for speeds mostly around 160km/h and in general for no more than 200km/h. I was talking about HS lines similar to those in Italy and other European countries for speeds up to 300+ km/h.

The sale to Trenitalia was concluded yesterday. Only thing pending is the approval of EU competition authorities (considering the €700 million state aid), which seems will not be an issue.

Greece concludes sale of TRAINOSE to Italian railways

Dreaming is possible, but it won't happen.

No fanfare, no politicians or train company officials? No free gifts, souvenirs? No excited crowds? No media event? Or did that happen at another moment?

I did notice the smudges from an attempt to clean graffiti from the side...

Edit: I now see in the title of the video that it was a test run. That explains why only trainspotters showed up.

From where to where did it run? Piraeus? SKA? Up north? Corinth?
Pardon my ignorance, but I have not been to town for a while and do not know about the progress of electrification or track upgrading in recent years.

Hey there, i have 1 question about the tracks to the airport in the middle of the motorway.
Are they used both by the metro and by commuter trains?
The line is 25 kV 50Hz, isn't it?
If this is right, were does is the junction between rail and metro?
