SAMSUN | Public Transport

Since mid 90’s Turkey is constructing many new tramway systems, including big cities & small towns. In the last year, it opened a new tramway system in Samsun.

Samsun’s tram runs only in 1 route, but it has many modern specifications like any modern tram network. The rolling stock is same like Kayseri tram.

Just look the opening date & time – 10.10.10 at 10:10:10 how intelligent & humorous authority!!!


POST AS MANY AS PHOTOS OF SAMSUN TRAM HERE.

WOW, THE PHOTOS & LINkS ARE WONDERFUL, ENDLESS THANKS TO ALL.

The official website is the municipal website, which has a portion about tramway. The original website is in Turkish, but they used automatic google translation to English & other languages. Although this translation is not 100% perfect, but it gives us a brief idea.

There are tram projects for Trabzon, Denizli,K.Maraş,İzmir but all are yet projects.But Bursa will start to construct a totally new ring line very soon and this will open in 2012. Eskisehir and Gaziantep allready started for extentions and new lines, we hope these will all complated by next year.

As for metro constructions; Istanbul will have 2 new subway lines, for both continents and by the end of this year we will start to ride these 2 new lines.
Also Izmir is constructing new lines and complated sections will be in use beginning from this year. Ankara has new lines also in construction
and we are expecting to open these in 2012.

Please try to answer these -
1) Reserved or unreserved, - which type of track layout is common in Samsun tramway network?
2) Which is the busiest tram terminus?
3) Where is/are the depot(s) of the tramway network?

It is glad to know that Turkey is constructing many tramways in some small cities also, like Samsun. With reserved track, modern stock, and stops with sheds, it is really good.

However, please try to answer those questions written above.

CNR Tangshan signs Turkish tram contract

08 January 2013

TURKEY: Samsun Metropolitan Municipality has awarded CNR Tangshan Railway Vehicles a contract to supply five 100% low-floor trams to increase passenger capacity on the city's light rail network.

The €7·5m contract signed on December 17 requires the first tram to be delivered by December 2013 and the last by February 2014. The Chinese firm will provide spares, technical support and a 24-month warranty.

The four-section standard gauge trams will have aluminium bodies and a floor height of 350 mm. Top speed will be 70 km/h, and they will be equipped for regenerative braking.

At 42 m the trams will be longer than the 16, 32 m long AnsaldoBreda Sirio trams delivered for the opening of the 17 km tramway in October 2010. This will give a 25% increase in capacity per tram, relieving crowding which has been experienced as ridership has grown from 13 million passengers in 2011 to 17 million in 2012. Further growth is expected when planned extensions to the line are opened.

Samsun tram flown from China to Turkey



03 Dec 2013

TURKEY: The first of five trams which Samsun Metropolitan Municipality ordered from CNR Tangshan Railway Vehicles has been delivered from China to Turkey onboard the world's largest heavy freight aircraft.

The €7·5m contract signed on December 17 2012 required the first tram to be delivered by December this year, with the last due by February 2014.

The trams were due to be shipped by sea, however Typhoon Haiyan would have caused the deadline to be missed and so CNR Tangshan selected the faster but more expensive option of flying the initial vehicle from Shijiazhuang Zhengding International Airport to Samsun-Çarsamba airport onboard the Antonov Airlines An-225 Mriya, which was originally developed to transport the USSR's Buran spacecraft.



The trams are the first 100% low-floor cars CNR Tangshan has built for export, with a floor height of 350 mm. The four-section aluminium-bodied vehicles are 42 m long, 3·5 m high, 2 650 mm wide, and weigh around 60 tonnes. Their maximum speed will be 70 km/h, and they are suitable for a minimum curve radius of 19 m. The trams will operate from a 750 V DC overhead supply, and will be equipped for regenerative braking.

They offer a 25% increase in capacity compared to the 32 m long Sirio trams which AnsaldoBreda supplied to Samsun for the opening of the 17 km tramway in October 2010.





Well, Antonov constructors perfectly did their job. One day, when I saw NatGeo documentary Big Bigger Biggest and how the same plane loaded and transported Delhi Metro train, I can proud that someone made such perfect plane

Why did they choose this short-articulated design (bogie under each module)? Was there something wrong with the multi-articulated Breda design?
