As far as I know, it's about a Chinese loan, to 'remake' the Silk Route once again, so there can be more flow of people and goods between China and Europe, East and West.

The Chinese I think are also funding some other railway projects in Serbia and Bulgaria...

I assume the Vectron goes to Turkey to be tested on behalf of DB Schenker, as the TCDD just received its first E6800 from Hyundai Rotem / Skoda for testing!

Crazy. When last I used the Konya HSL, there were still several places where trains slowed down to 160 kmh, although there were no curves or other obvious hinderances. Inofficial reports a while ago stated that these slow sections were due to insufficient substructure (soft underground) and the line would have to be closed down for months for improvement works before high speed could be achieved there. Under those circumstances it is useless to begin testing for 300 kmh or higher speeds on the okay sections.

So, they ran into the same problem as the Spanish authorities? The last bit of the Madrid-Barcelona HSL (near Lleida) was hit by similar trouble. Apparently they had overestimated the resilience of the topsoil. Quite a bit of a scandal, with costly delays as a result.

Well, I suppose that testing for speeds around 350 indicates that they eventually wish to have the line approved for 320 km/h? I believe that it is customary to test new lines at 10% above the intended future top speed.
