The tunnel will connect Europe, the Middle East and Asia's railway routes





Interestingly, they show the Korean-Turkish HST in the rendered video

Marmaray (Bosphorus Rail Tunnel) will connect both the railway lines between Europe and Asia (the Middle East and beyond) and the subway lines of Istanbul's European and Asian sides.

In the future, you will be able to board on a train in London and go all the way to Jerusalem, Cairo, Tehran and beyond.

Orient Express will no longer have to end in Istanbul.

I am confused. So do the "metro" and longer distance trains share the same tracks?

Or do they run on different tracks in the same tunnel?

I'm not sure that this trains will enter in service in October 2006. RENFE bought the same trains (120 emu's serial train) and they have a lot of problems.

And the 1st video is a CAF promocional video. In this I seen a lot of spanish trains: Madrid, Barcelona and Bilbao metros, Bilbao and Valencia tram, RENFE new Civia train, the TRD (594 dmu train) and 598 dmu train, AVE-s/100 and AVE-s/104, and other european dmu trains.

The 2nd video it's a wiew of the works.

TURKEY | High Speed Rail

Turkey gets EIB loan for high speed railway project

ISTANBUL, Dec 15, 2006 (AFP) - The European Investment Bank (EIB) granted Turkey a loan of 850 million euros (1.1 billion dollars) to build the country's first high speed railway between capital Ankara and financial centre Istanbul, the bank said on Friday.

The loan is a key element of the Turkish State Railway's plans to improve connections between Ankara and key areas of economic activity and respond to rising demand for railway services, said an EIB statement received here.

The project involves the construction of a 533-kilometre (330-mile) railway track between the two cities with trains travelling at a speed of 250 kilometers per hour, thus reducing travel time to three hours.

The project will cost 2.6 billion euros and is to become fully operational in 2008.

Turkey has been under pressure to overhaul its decades-old decrepit railway system since a series of fatal train accidents two years ago.

Thirty-seven people were killed in July 2004 when a newly inaugurated express train derailed in northwestern Turkey, and another eight people perished a month later when two trains crashed head-on in the same region.
