Welcome to the Hellenic Trainspotters' Site
Generaly, railway is a mean of transport with millions of friends around the world. The magnificent landscapes that crosses and the unique journey that he offers in combination with his aesthetic, make him the favorite way of travelling to many peaople. Many have develop their sympathy into love for this mean. Specifically, some of them are taking photos or filming the trains in different places from where thay pass. These people are the trainspotters. Although there are thousands of train fans around the world in Hellas the railfans, and especially the trainspotters, are only a few dozen. Some them are the members of Hellenic Trainspotters' Site's team.
Our website was created in September 2013 with main purpose to highlight the magic of the Hellenic railway with its beautiful scenery and full of history networks. Through photos and videos on our website we want to offer an opportunity for ordinary people, who may not have any relation with railfans, to explore this beautiful mean of transport, but also to share our material with other photographers and ,generally, railfans. The site came through several transformations until it receives the form it has today and the team actually reached the current members in November 2015.
The archive that can be found in our albums is mainly with hellenic trains but there are also pictures from our trips abroad. The photographs are classified by line and region of the country, giving visitors the opportunity to explore our train network partially. Apart from trainspotting photos - as we call them - there are albums for tourist routes in Hellas, those of Pelion and the Rack railway of Kalavrita, and a very interesting collection with photographs of hellenic stations. Finally for artistic photography lovers there are the "atmospheric shots" with night pictures. Of course there is also another very important sector of our website which can be found on our YouTube channel with extensive footage from the hellenic railways. The link for the channel can found under this insert at the topic "Links".
The members of our team are five. Initiators and founders of the site are Alexander Sikalias and Jason Zorzos. The first is the main videographer of the site and Jason is one our photographers. The other members are Dimitrios Papadopoulos, George Kariofyllis and Thanos Avdoulas. The photos that have been added to the site are more than 3500 and our videos on Youtube are over 60 hours.
In short we gave you some information about us and our work. We wish you a pleasant e-journey at the atmospheric corners of the hellenic railways. We hope you enjoy our website and be satisfied with our work. You can also register on our site to learn our news and subscribe to our channel on Youtube to see every new video that is published.
