Is the "Piri Reis" test train one of the normla fleet of CAF YHT train sets with additional equipment fitted, or is it a specially built train. If it is part of the CAF fleet, which number set is it?

Haydarpaşa station modernisation approved
27 Aug 2014



TURKEY: The historical monuments section of the Ministry of Culture & Tourism has approved plans for Istanbul’s Haydarpaşa station to be modernised for use by high speed services.

The landmark waterfront station on the Asian side of the city opened in 1908. Services were suspended in 2013 because of works for the Marmaray suburban and Ankara – Istanbul high speed line projects, with suburban services now using the tunnel under the Bosporus.

Conversion of the station into a hotel or shopping centre has been proposed, but it will now be modernised to become the terminus of high speed services from Ankara, pending completion of the third Bosporus bridge which will carry road and inter-city rail services to the European side of the city.

When will the Velaro enter passenger service in Turkey? Will it be used on the Pendik to Konya route?

TCDD to overhaul CAF high-speed trains
7 OCT, 2014

[IMG]http://i1.wp.com/www.globalrailnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/TCDD_mdgn_************.com_.jpg?zoom=2&resize=720%2C400[/IMG]

Turkish State Railways (TCDD) has awarded Alstom a Ä2.5 million contract to overhaul five high-speed trainsets.

The trains, which were manufactured by CAF, operate on the high-speed corridors between Ankara-Istanbul and Ankara-Konya.

Alstom has already overhauled five other trains, which entered service in November 2012.

The work will be carried out at a TCDD depot in Ankara over a 12-month period.

we don't satisfied with metro sets of CAF in İstanbul and I didn't heard nice comments about those HSR sets too.
I guess we're only happy with their sets in İZBAN.

But there is any particular problem with them or just general complaints? Mechanical problems?

Alstom who now keeps the trains, so I do not think there's any manufacturer's warranty.
This theme of change maintenance company to 3/4 years of delivery has no sense, but it is legal.
.....................
Ahora es Alstom quien mantiene los trenes, asŪ que no creo que exista ningķn tipo de garantŪa del fabricante.
Este tema de cambiar de empresa de mantenimiento a los 3/4 aŮos de la entrega no tiene ningķn sentido, pero es legal.
