Note that there is a one hour time difference between Greece and Macedonia.

(Florina -) Neos Kafkasos OSE - Kremenica MŽ (- Bitola)

[D] This line has been out of use for several years. Formerly, OSE worked to Kremenica. There were plans to re-open the railway to passengers by 2014, but the project has been the subject of delays and cancellations. Work is reported to have resumed in February 2018.

(Thessaloníki -) Idomeni OSE - Gevgelija MŽ (- Skopje)

[E] Generally, OSE operates to Gevgelija. This route carries one daily train pair on the "Hellas Express" route Thessaloníki - Skopje - Beograd. However, with effect from 21 August 2015 until further notice, the train ran only between Beograd and Gevgelija and did not cross the border, owing to issues with migrants. The service between Gevgelija and Thessaloniki was provided by bus. However, a daily Beograd <> Thessaloniki train reappeared from 10 December 2017 but with the note that, until further notice, the section between Gengelija and Thessaloniki will be operated by bus Monday to Friday. The situation in 2018 is not confirmed.
