At the time it connected Milies with Volos and climbed up the mountain for 76 years, from 1895 to 1971, transfered people and goods, thus contributing significantly to the region` s sharp growth. Today it offers a marvelous 1,5h trip , running between the village of Ano Lechonia and Milies, offering striking images of rare beauty.
