New alignment opens with the longest railway tunnel in the Balkans – Railway Gazette

GREECE: The first train ran on the recently-completed 54 km Tithorea – Lianokladi line on February 2, following the formal handover of the new line on January 31. The route forms part of a 106 km double track alignment which is being built between Tithorea and Domokos to replace a 122 km single track route with steep grades and sharp curves which formed a bottleneck on the Athens – Thessaloniki main line.
