Where history
is written on rails...

The Line...

Solely relying on volunteering, we strive to maintain a stretch of track belonging to the former Thessaly Railway network, between Velestino and Palaiofarsalos stations in operating condition. Works on the track began on 1999 and carry on to this day. We mainly focus on the track infrastructure (replacing aging sleepers, loading gauge restoration) and on maintaining our heritage rolling stock.

The Route...

Starting from Velestino station, the Thessalian Railway spans over a distance of 42 kilometres, terminating at Palaiofarsalos station. Travellers pass over steep grades, on the edge of cliffs, over picturesque small bridges and lush, green fields.

"I reminisce of the train passing on the edge of the cliff, as it climbed steeply towards Aerino..."
