The latest issue of "Locomotives International" has some recent photos from Greece, including a reference to Lb 964 at Thessaloniki depot and a photo of Lb 962 inside the "big shed" at Drama (with a CIWL coach behind). So, at some point Lb 962 must have been moved there, as the space it occupies in the picture (dated 3rd September 2019) was given over to Daisines when I visited in April 2018.

The question is when and how it was moved there?

Hi everyone,

Pierre, this pic is a real document! It’s the first time I see a close picture of a Lb with a spoked wheel and still featuring the left-hand drive!

It would be nice if one of the Thessaloniki-based friends could supply some information about the conversion dates.

Thanks for posting, and All The Best for the New Year (in other words, Bonne et Heureuse Année!! )
