Hello everybody,

I am searching informations of compositions of night trains between Thessaloniki and Athens in the middle of 90 years with car carrier.
Another question, Do you know when national Motorail service started in Greece ? (Thessaloniki - Athens)

Thank you

Hi Jerome25,
I suggest you to ask the colleagues on balkanmodels.biz, it is an english speaking greek Forum.
I am pretty shure that you will find all information you need there.

Hello jerome25,

As far as I know, a typical night train compositon Thessaloniki-Athens in mid 90s included carriages such as red WLABmh (ex DB) sleeping carriages, red Bcme couchettes, ex CIWL sleeping carriage, some 2. class seating carriages and of course a car carrier type Sekgss.

Take a look at this video, for example 4th October 1997 (15.57min) train 504, 23:17 Athens - Thessaloniki :

Hello,

Big thanks for this video ! What a great document !
Very very interesting, big surprise too it seems that some day trains have car carrier between Athen and Thessaloniki.
I think that the Sekgss car carrier were used until the « new » MDDm start in debut 2000 years.

In the debut of 90 years, there were night trains Germany - Greece with german DDm. Great years !

Have a nice day and thanks

Yes Jerome25, take a look at our topic about Attika train (Munchen-Athens), a train with car carriers to Athens and Thessaloniki:

Hi, thanks Sky for these photos.
I suppose that 506 and 507 were the numbers of the night trains in 1992 and with Segkss car carrier. Numbers changes to 504 / 505, 600 / 601 some years after.
So it seems that the Motorail service starts before 1996 as I think.
Maybe it starts when Greece Railways buy those Segkss car carrier.

Also thanks Mon for the link to the other forum.
For BalkanModels, the problem is that I dont know the answer to the question to show that I am a real humain !. Just that because I am not an expert about Greece locomotives !

Have a nice day !
