Municipal Railway Park of Kalamata - Overview

  The Municipal Railway Park of Kalamata is an open-air museum, unique of its kind in Greece. The park encompasses the old railway station Kalamata-Port and the adjacent area that it was used for the deposition of bunkers back at the time of the steam trains.
  Among the exhibits of the Museum are included the station and its area, with a small double-storeyed building for the station-master, four platforms and an entrance pavilion with fixed benches for waiting passengers. There are also a water-tower with a cylindrical stone base, three fountains for steam engines, and control wheel, a metal pedestrian bridge of 28m in length running along the axis of the station-master's office, as well as other details connected with the organization of a railway (switch levers, lanterns, stands, stoppers). The rolling stock on display includes seven steam and one diesel engines, two draeseners (foot-and hand-operated respectively), a manually-operated crane (1890), first and second class passenger carriages (1885) and eight freight cars of various types (1885-1947).
