I saw from your page that you visited already the Kalávryta rack railway.
Now, with the new Stadler trains it is a different experience (but, fortunately, the windows can be opened)
I also found this video on Youtube:

Can you give me any information about the (tourist?) railway line and the operator of the draisines?
Your answers are highly appreciated!
This is the old Témpi valley route (standard gauge), along Pineios river (north of Lárissa)
This route has been disconnected from the mainline when the new alignment used tunnels.
The easiest way to visit the route is to get the 'Proastiakós' train from Lárissa to Rapsáni, because the other end of the route (near Eyaggelismós station) is far from an operating station.
I suggest also these scenic parts of the Greek network:
- The (still current) mainline between Tithoréa-Brálos-Lianokládi and Lianokládi-Domokós
- The Néstos river valley (after Dráma station)
- The Western Macedonia region (seen from Thessaloniki towards Édessa-Flórina, especially after Skýdra)
Hope this helps.
Cheers, and welcome in our forum!
