The last meter gauge coach purchase, from Romania. One of the basic classes used untill nearly the end of hauled trains in Peloponnese, along with the German 1967 ones, which were obviously older, but finally the Romanian were withdrawn a bit earlier.

All of them were built by Uzina de Vagoane Arad (U.V.A.) in 1975, except of the luggage vans (1980).

When the luggage vans, and at least some of the others came, they were painted dark green, but after a few years their colour was changed to the familliar Peloponnese colour (blue - grey).

--> 27 B' class coaches, numbers Βφκπτ 621-647 (the "κ" means that they had both compressed air and vacuum braking systems, in contrast with the German ones which had only compressed air, so "Βφπτ").

Βφκπτ 625 at Mili, nearly a year before it was scrapped..

Βφκπτ 627 at Sirtis, some months before scrapping.

--> 5 A' + B' class coaches, numbers ΑΒφκπτ 671-675.


The only existing of them, ΑΒφκπτ 673, at Kalamata depot..

--> 8 B' + Bar coaches, numbers ΒΚφκπτ 681-688, none of them still exists.

--> 10 luggage vans with numbers Δφπτ (and this time not Δφκπτ) 1806-1815 (according to U.I.C. 42 73 940 1 806-815. Note: They had UIC number, but only the first 11 digits. They did not have the last, check digit).


42 73 940 1 809 at Aris.

42 73 940 1 812 at Vartholomio, 3 years before scrapping..

--> In 1985-1986 four of the B' class coaches were converted to W.L., with new numbers Κφκπτ 651-654.

Κφκπτ 652 at Aris, the only one existing.

thanks Jason, nice presentation.
I didn't know they were almost all of them scraped! :(
I visited Miloi station the 21st February 2010 but they were so badly grafitized that I barely took 5-6 photos of them...

As for ΒΚφκπτ 684, it was not in the scrap list, according to a website about Argolida's area (I cannot remember the name now).However, I do not know what happened after...
