This dresine was manufactured in 1955 by Piraeus depot workshop for use on the metric gauge network of the Peloponnese region, as a major shortage in dresines plagued the network at that time. Our own and her sisters were used for track inspection and maintenance. D 243 spent a few years out of service but she was then restored for operation on the former Athens -Lavrion network. Finally, she was assigned to our network and has been tirelessly offering her services to us since then, currently undergoing repair.
