The basics are that all [i:i7oreowp]3-digit[/i:i7oreowp] trains are the normal slow trains and the [i:i7oreowp]2-digit[/i:i7oreowp] trains are IC trains (Attention: EUR 6-28 of supplements!).
Greece trains are often not in time! Calculate some extra time![/color:i7oreowp]

The station close to Athens is called [b:i7oreowp]Kiato[/b:i7oreowp]. There you move from the normal train to suburbian train (just from one platform to the other).

Train fare with NO InterRail Pass: ~18 EUR

The connection between Kiato and Diakofto is served by buses from OSE since there are works on the rails at this part.
So the route goes Piraeus - Athens - Kiato by Proastiakos (Suburban train) / Kiato - Diakofto by OSE bus / Diakofto - Patras by scheduled trains by OSE
If you are a smiling low budget traveler use this route otherwise i suggest taking the bus from Patras to Athens. (The difference is around 6-7 euros and 1-1.30 hours)

these trains are also WITHDRAWN since early this year.
Most of the ferries have their own bus from right beside the quay to ATH-these may bring you further into the centre, but are likely to cost more as the normal KTEL-bus. Check the website of your ferry (there are several).
