Great!! It has been long awaited and now it has happened. In my personal view the new line that will eventually connect Ankara all the way to Istanbul is a neat, pragmatic solution: it cries to high heavens that the 50+ km south of Izmit are kept "in option" for future speed upgrades if the traffic takes off as they hope it will.

Congratulations to our Turkish friends. - But, hey, with a Minister of Transportation by the name of Mr. Yilderim what would one expect but a new generation of very fast trains?

Which train control? Hmm I do not know much about that topic but is there a "euroean" system? If yes, I guess that's what they used.

Right now 10 spanish made CAF are used but the highspeed train factory in Sakarya is completed so Turkish Tuvasas and Korean Rotem will produce the KTX II in Sakarya which has a max. speed of 350 km/h and looks much sexier!

Factory in Sakarya:

nice

I hope the new KTX II will built as soon as possible.It makes 100km/h difference between KTX II (350km/h) and CAF Trains (250km/h).High Speed Lines are built for a maximum speed of 350km/h.

Btw. When will be completed the part between Eskisehir to Istanbul ???

the record on the existing line is 303 km/h. I think 250 km/h is chosen because of efficienty reasons.

BTW Ankara-Sivas is u/c since last friday

Then they are contradicting their own data since it is impossible to cover 350km in 1h 15min running at 250km/h. 430km in 1h 45min is also impossible.
