In Russia both 3kV= and 25kV~50Hz
Georgia seems mostly 3kV= but may be this will change with the BTK project
Iran 25kV~50Hz

Stadler forms joint venture in Azerbaijan
http://www.railwaygazette.com/news/b...zerbaijan.html

Stadler Rail and local partner International Railway Distribution LLC announced the formation of a 51:49 joint venture on July 17.

Stadler said it foresees a demand for its products as CIS countries modernise their rail networks and encourage the transfer of traffic from road to rail.

Wow! Is there any information when the service Baku - Tiflis - Kars - Ankara - Istanbul will start?
Is it just a seasonal luxury train or a regular one?

All coaches will be delivered till 2017, probably the service will start then.

The new railway line between Georgia and Turkey should also be operational then, at the Innotrans fair in Berlin I asked a representative from TCDD and got the information that it is planned to open the line in late 2015.


As ADDY ordered 30 coaches (3 trainsets a 10 coaches) I'm quite sure that it will be a regular service. With 2 trainsets in use and one in reserve (for maintenance) I assume that a train every 3 days or twice-weekly can be offered.

I expect the demand for through passenger trains will be quite strong, so perhaps the railways will try to operate all three sets in traffic, with maintenance only taking place between journeys. That way you could have a service on alternate days.

I wonder if some sort of interim service will be offered, involving a change of trains at the gauge change station in Georgia, prior to the arrival of the purpose-built Stadler coaches?

I wonder as well, but as long as the railway track isn't finished... Does anyone know the status of track laying between Kars and the Georgian border?

So the idea is that the service will go all the way from Istanbul to Baku?

Baku-Tiblisi-Kars Railway project to be ready at the end of 2015

Turkey´s part is already finished in 2014

Quote:
SILK ROAD TO BE RECONSTRUCTED UNDER MODERN TERMS FOR RAILWAYS

The Baku-Tbilisi-Kars Railway Line is one of the most important projects for the Modern Silk Road and Turkey will complete its part of the construction process by the end of the year of 2014



ISTANBUL — The Minister of Transportation, Maritime and Communication Lütfi Elvan attended the conference Baku-Tbilisi-Kars (BTK) Railway Line – New Opportunities in Developing the Historical Silk Way organized in Azerbaijan's capital, Baku. Speaking at the conference Elvan underlined the historical significance of the BTK project and said, "With the Baku-Tbilisi-Kars Project, we are not just building a railway line on our lands, but also establishing a link of peace and brotherhood. We are all one at heart with the same good intentions on opposite SIDES of the border."

Underlining the importance of political, economic and social cooperation, Elvan referred to the BTK Railway Line Project as a common development and progress project and said that the line of cooperation and brotherhood should be protected by all the countries involved. "Between 2003 and 2013 about TL 32.5 billion [$14.3 billion] was INVESTED in the railway sector. Our target for 2023 is to renew and modernize 25,000 kilometers of railways, out of which 12,000 kilometers will be ultra-speed and high-speed railways. Ten percent of this current system will serve passenger trains, 15 percent will serve FREIGHT trains and all trains will be constructed by Turkish companies," Elvan said. He further added that their goal is to extend the ultra and high-speed railway on the Silk Road route to Edirne in the west and Kars in the east. He further touched on the significance of the Avrasya tunnel, which is the sister project of Marmaray and will pass under the Bosporus and Istanbul's third Airport, which is designed to be one of the most prominent airports in the world, Çandarlı Port in North Aegean and the third Bosporus bridge. "When all these projects are completed, not only Turkey, but Central Asia and the Caucasus's access to Europe will become much easier."

Elvan announced their targets for the transportation industry after the BTK project is completed. He said that currently 83 percent of the project, which involves construction of a 79-kilometer railway with a budget of $700 million, has been completed and that they are planning to finish the part located in Turkey by the end of the year. "This will be an important line for the modern Silk Road. Connecting Central Asia to Turkey over the Caspian Sea and from here to Europe through the Marmaray project will ensure that there is easier, safer and quicker transportation between Central Asia and Europe. The transportation infrastructure of the countries in the region will also be linked together. Central Asian countries will have fast transportation links between themselves with the implementation of this project. The Baku-Tbilisi-Kars project, which is an important and supplementary part of the East-West transportation corridor, will unite Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey and also will ensure that the Aktau Port in Kazakhstan and Türkmenbaşı Port in Turkmenistan gain more strategic value in the corridor. China will be connected to Europe over the Caspian Sea region, Central Asia and Turkey. This will ensure economic progress and development and also cultural RELATIONS between the countries will improve," said Elvan.

Ilham Aliyev attended a ceremony to lay the foundation of Stadler Ganja Carriage Factory


The head of state and his wife reviewed the general plan of the factory, and designs of carriages to be manufactured here.

Transport Minister Ziya Mammadov and Stadler Rail Group CEO Peter Spuhler informed President Ilham Aliyev about the project.

It was said that the Stadler Rail Group and Azerbaijan`s Railway International Distribution company signed an agreement to jointly establish a carriage factory in Ganja. Under the agreement, the facility with an annual capacity of 60 carriages will be built in Gajka at the initial stage. The factory will be fitted with state-of-the-art Swiss made equipment.

The Stadler Rail Group focuses on regional and suburban traffic, light S-rail traffic, the tram and rack railway sectors. Founded in 1942, the company embarked on its path of development in 1989. It has factories in Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Austria, Italy, the USA and other countries. The company`s products are used in 13 countries.

It was noted that the factory, to be located in Kapaz District, will be inaugurated in 2016. The construction work will involve state-of-the-art environmentally-friendly technology. The facility, which will cover an area of 20 hectares, will sell its products to Turkey, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Iran.

President Ilham Aliyev and his wife Mehriban Aliyeva reviewed the carriages manufactured at the Stadler Rail Group`s factory in Minsk. It was noted that the carriages meet highest standards.
