The train covers the 22 km journey travelling at a speed of 30-40km/h when moving along the regular rack and 6-15km/h when moving along the toothed racks. Students also visited the most important monument in Kalavrita, the Site of Execution, which is placed on the hill Kapi, 500 meters nere the center of town. There on 13 December 1943 all men who were more than 14 years old, were killed by Nazi.
