Railway Operators in Greece


OSE - Organismos Sidirodromon Ellados

Network length, gauge and electrification (1995):

In 2006 - as one of the last in EU member states - the OSE was split up in a network manager and an operating company. EDISY S.A. ("National Administrator of Railway Infrastructure") will run the Greek railway network, while TRENOSE S.A. will operate all passenger and freight trains, some busses, tourist trains and the telecom network. ERGOSE S.A. will - as now - run the construction projects.
In 2000 OSE moved 12.3 million passengers, producing 1.6 billion passenger-km. Freight traffic amounted 2.4 million tonnes and 326 million tonne-km. Total network length in the year 2000 was 2299km (division unknown).

Due to the financial problems of the Greek government, massive cuts are expected (or have already taken place) in the railway network in 2011. All narrow gauge lines might be closed, and all regional services on standard gauge lines suspended. Only InterCity services and commuter from Thessaloniki and Athens might remain.
