3 railway lines to be built with 250km/hr speed! Major investment of $3 billion for Istanbul-Ankara line! That is remarkable. Good luck Turkey

How much is being invested in other two lines? What distances are we talking about for the three lines?

Turkey is the first Muslim majority nation to have a high speed train and manufacture its own train..congrats.

Turkey is certainly an inspiration to Malaysia.

Thank you for your nice words forrestcat. Well I admired Malaysia for its technology and for Petronas too

Btw in order to enlighten Trainman Dave here is a map of the whole project.

Right now the pink and the dark blue line is u/c. (Ankara-Istanbul and Ankara-Konya lines) According to the plan all lines will be completed by 2012. The track you see in the video is the line between Ankara and Istanbul.

TGV clone?apart from having any similarities that all trains should have, i cant see a single clone image on it, and if it was a clone of something that would probably be a japanese train.

Wrong TGV in the photograph. That is the new TGVs. The Korean 350 HST's were, I believe, based the TGV-a trainsets but these have been modified by the Koreans. The heritage is the TGV not the Japanese.
