Featured TRAINOSE: On January 18, the first new generation train arrives

On January 18, the first of the five first-generation trains with the name "White Arrow" brought by TRAINOSE to Greece arrives in Thessaloniki, from Italy. Its first passenger service will take place on the Athens-Thessaloniki route on March 25 on the occasion of the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the revolution of 1821. This train is the ETR 470 n. 07 of Trenitalia that was completely reconstructed was painted in the colors of the Greek company and will be the ETR 470 n train. 01 of TRAINOSE.

According to the company CEO, Professor Filippos Tsalidis, the new trains capable of speeds of 200 kilometers per hour will be gradually delivered after being tested on the Greek railway network. TRAINOSE train drivers have already gone to Italy to receive relevant training and to bring the first train to Greece. The new trains will have nine carriages, one of which will be a restaurant and bar. They will have three first class wagons and four economy wagons.

Each train will be able to carry over 600 passengers and will include high standards and all those amenities - better than aircraft - for a relaxing and fast trip. Given the conditions of the Greek railway network that is constantly improving, the new trains will be able to develop speeds of 160 kilometers and the Athens-Thessaloniki route to be covered in three hours and a quarter as opposed to four today. The cost of the entire investment for TRAINOSE reaches 52 million euros.
