Narrow gauge train and railway Pelion Greece© BBC. Exactly a century ago the little train of Pelion started. The 'Volos - Milies' line was designed by Evaristo de Kiriko (father of the famous artist). Today many years after the closure of the line, the train has started functioning again. The journey is fascinating passing through green valleys, gorges, small tunnels and crossing arched bridges. It operates on the weekends travelling from Milies to Lehonia.
