TL;DR

A glimpse of past when looking at the old railway station building in Derveni.
This plain building belongs to OSE (Railroad Organization of Greece) and is included in the list of old railway stations designated as “art work” and protected by the state. Derveni station, like many similar station buildings, has the typical architectural and structural features of stone buildings with wooden ceilings and a brick roof. You will notice the jamb on all four corners, the framing of doors and windows (usually red bricks), the false ceiling with roof slats and goat hair for lime plaster, the big trusses, the arched windows, the big wooden paneled doors and the decorative fascias.
