Some train services in Greece resumed on Wednesday for the first time since the deadly train collision that killed 57 people and injured dozens on February 28.

On board are two train drivers and two supervisors.

among the running services are of Proastiakos Piraeus-Athens-Airport, Athens-Halkida-Athens, Patras proastiakos and other. Check with

Hellenic Train


Full restoration of the train service is scheduled in five phases, while every 5 days a rail track will be open with increased security measures.

The deadly train collision has politically cost conservative Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and he is struggling to regain its footing especially due to upcoming elections “in May” as he said in an interview on Tuesday night.

Fact is that citizens are angry at the government for not taken the necessary measures in the four years in power in order to avoid such a tragedy and they don’t seem to be convinced of the Mitsotakis and the whole government narrative that “everybody is to blame for the disaster, except the Transport Minister and the PM.”
