  • [01] Full steam ahead: Restored 'Moutzouris' locomotive returns to Kalavrita railway

    ANA-MPA -- A slice of living history, the original DK 8001 steam locomotive that first ran on the tracks of the Diakofto-Kalavrita rack railway has been put back to work, offering visitors a unique opportunity to experience some ravishing scenery, as well as an authentic taste of bygone eras. Hellenic Railway Organisation (OSE) on Tuesday took delivery of the fully restored and refurbished steam engine from the Hellenic Company for Maintenance of Railway Rolling Stock, which returned the historic locomotive to its base, where it will once again ply the dramatic and scenic route from Diakofto to Kalavrita. First built under the Harilaos Trikoupis government of 1896, the 750 mm gauge rack railway runs 22 km from Diakofto through the Vouraikos Gorge and the old Mega Spilaion Monastery and up to Kalavryta, stopping en route at Zachlorou. The DK 8001 engine was the original locomotive built by Cail and a historic part of the country's railway fleet.
