Volos station: OSE DMU 621 202 / 108 has just arrived from Larissa. The Larissa - Volos route was opened in 1881 at metre gauge, and was re-gauged to standard in 1960. However metre gauge tracks remained here until 1999 when the metre gauge line from Volos to Paleofarsalos and Kalambaka was closed, only the latter secton being converted to standard gauge. There were also 600mm gauge tracks here to Milies until closure in 1971.
