This year there was a seasonal train Bucuresti-Thessaloniki, it ran once a week, first day of circulation was 17.06.2016, last day 06.09.2016
Trains IR 460/1460-1461/461
Here are some pictures, taken that day at Bucuresti Nord by Mircea Dorobantu (his copyright), published here with his kind permission:

I am sorry, but I don't have pictures of this train taken in Greece. Perhaps one of our friends from Greece has some.
I think it was the first occasion to see the newest 2nd class coaches of CFR in Greece.
@BarbaPanagos: The AcBc is back!

All the best,

Thanks Stefan! and thanks to Mircea Dorobantu too! Very nice shots!
The red coach, assuming of the doors position must be a local addition.
Do we know the composition of the train when in Greece? Were only those 3 coaches or some OSE or BDZ wagons were added?

61 53 40-31 013-8 AcBcmee at Thessaloniki station, summer 2018. photos: Spiros Tsintarakis
from HELLENIC TRAINS AND RAILWAYS fb group https://www.facebook.com/groups/Hellenic.Trains/

The same type that we can see in older photos in this topic but with a new livery similar to the AVA cars.
It comes with the known summer train Bucharest - Thessaloniki.

It's amazing how CFR manage to maintain and use all those old wagons and even make them looking great!
