Siemens Desiro EMU-5 skirts Saronic Gulf & abandoned metre gauge

The Proastiakos (Greek: Προαστιακός, English: 'suburban') is the collective name for Greece's suburban (commuter rail) services, which are run by TrainOSE, the country's only rail operator, on infrastructure owned by the Hellenic Railways Organisation (OSE).

Currently,[when?] there are three Proastiakos networks, servicing the country's three largest cities: Athens, Thessaloniki and Patras. providing them with modern commuter rail links, towards their suburbs and also towards other cities and towns located around them.

In Athens, the Proastiakos offers a direct connection between Athens International Airport and Kiato (image above taken along this line), in the Peloponnese. The service also connects the port of Piraeus with Halkida in Evia, through Athens Railway Station, which is more commonly called Stathmos Larisis.
