Iconic Greek Rail Route Resumes Service Following April’s Landslide



The operation of the “Odontotos”, the iconic Greek cog railway, resumed for the first time on Thursday following a landslide which took place in April.

Due to adverse weather conditions and heavy rain, the landslide blocked the railway line which connects the North Peloponnesian towns of Kalavryta and Diakofto.

As its name implies, the ”Odontotos” is a train which uses toothlike cogs on its track for part of the journey through mountainous forestland.

It is now one of the most iconic railway experiences in Greece, attracting thousands of tourists who want to view the natural beauty of the mountainous Peloponnesian peninsula.
