One of the world’s narrowest railway lines, the train comprises four wagons and is nicknamed “Moutzouris,” for the steam and smoke it once produced. The train travels from Ano Lechonia to Milies with a stop in ano Gatzea. It covers a distance of 15 kilometers in about 90 minutes, navigating a mountainous route through a forest of plane trees and oaks.

The train makes a single stop in Ano Gatzea for 15 minutes before continuing its 15-kilometer picturesque journey, which takes about 90 minutes. The train originally operated between Volos and Milies, with construction of the railway beginning in 1892 and finishing in 1903. The construction was overseen by Evaristo de Chirico, father of artist Giorgio de Chirico, who was born in Volos.
