The Orient Express in "FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE"

I read on the Wikipedia site that Ian Fleming had traveled aboard the Simplon Orient Express in the mid 1950s, traveling from Turkey to France. But while reading the "From Russia With Love" novel, I found it very disturbing that Bond passed through the Greek town of Thessaloniki before reaching the Yugoslavian city of Belgrade. Isn't there something off about that? I thought that Thessaloniki was part of the Orient Express branch between Athens and Belgrade.

    Ummm if you watch the Eurovision song contest now, it should answer any questions that you haven't found.
