Greek Railway Strike Cancels International Trains

In connection with the strike of the Greek railway personnel, the operation of afternoon international trains Thessloniki – Sofia – Thessaloniki is cancelled today. The fax, sent by the Greek railways to BDZ EAD, states that the strike of Greek railway personnel is held only on 24th June 2005.

The train compositions include three passenger coaches – one first-class and two second-class coaches, which can seat 170 passengers altogether. In the first-class passenger coach there is a special compartment for disabled passengers. The same coach also offers a special compartment, equipped as a playground for the youngest passengers. This playground area can be used by all children, no matter whether their parents travel first or second class. All the coaches are air-conditioned.
