This summer I took Proastiakos from Larissa Station to Corinth en route to Kiato...I couldn't work out why it was an old train? I thought they that line only used the new cars?

I think you went to Corinth with MAN 2000 as this
http://www.imaginas.gr/gallery/index.php?iID=535.Ose had rent desiro dmu (diesel) but the contract expired and now in the part Athens-Corinth uses MAN2000 or Railbus http://www.imaginas.gr/gallery/index.php?iID=498.The goverment and the Minister mr Hatzidakis don't give money to buy new trains...

Not exist one answer in this question.Where you want go in Greece?If you want go from Athens to Thesaloniki the faster is the train.Intercity and intercity express and the trains with number 50x for example (500,502) and 501-503 from Thesaloniki.Are faster tha buses and cheaper.If you want go to Kalamata (South Peloponisos) you must go by bus becouse the train is out of service for reconstruction.

what is the line of Desriro trains?


İmaginas, I have another question. Signomi I ask so much, I know ; What is the last situation of new construction of Athens Larisa station? There was a construction before, but when I saw next time, there was minimum progress. I mean construction was going on very slow. Is there any change? does the station start to be shaped?

Desiro used in Line Neratziotisa-Athens Airport and Thesaloniki-Larisa

Ose had problems with the law about the constructions.Some people want the lines underground becouse say have noise and are dangerous for accidents.Now the constructions are in progress.
I hope to ask in your questions!

I am quite sure desiros were bought, otherwise why the hell were they stood in Thessaloniki for so many years...and now also serve Thessaloniki-Larisa suburban line,probably the diesel ones were loaned til the electrification is done, but certainly ose did bought the regular desiros

Here is a picture of a desiro in Larisa city station:

Only the Desiros EMU was bought.The diesels was rent.
Και στα Ελληνικά!Μόνο τα Ηλεκτροκίνητα αγοράστηκαν.Τα πετρελαιοκίνητα,ενοικιάστηκαν και μετά έφυγαν.Και η βλακεία είναι ότι πλήρωσαν για ενοίκιο όσο περίπου θα κόστιζαν να τα αγόραζαν!
