Will the Ankara - (Polatli) - Konya rioute be operated by the same trains currently running Ankara - Eskisehir? If so, that explains why only 4 trains per day are planned, as there is very little spare capacity in the existing fleet of High Speed Trains.

6 Eurotem made trains will be purchased additionally.


They are basically based on the Korean KTX II just made in Turkey with some national contribution.

So it seems that the new route is ready but the new trains are not. Is there any news when the new trains will be delivered?

well.. if everything was planned and organized well so no problems occurred later then the whole thing wouldn't be "Turkish" at all.. Regarding the new train, we have no idea so far, it was just said by the authorities that there is going to a new bid for 6 new trains soon.

Ankara-Konya line will be opened officially on 23th August.

The trains will travel with a speed of 300 km/h and later trains with a speed of 350 km/h will be introduced on this line.

The existing line is with 250 speed but this one may be 300 if the train is capable of this speed becz track to Konya is mostly straight.

Just today on TV they said that the line is suitable for 300 km/h but that the current Spanish trains can go 250 km/h only. The new 6 trains that will be ordered will be able to drive 300 km/h on that line.

Finally, after 4 years and 8 month of construction the Ankara-Polalti-Konya high speed line has been opened today. There is even a TV advertisement.

I think they could do without LCD screens on trains, especially on what is at most a 1.5 hr ride.

Antalya-Konya and Antalya-Eskişehir in 2023 if there's no damn separatist politicians acting like Kurdistan rebels.

Don't think so much, but I'm planning to use Ankara-Konya HSR line this month with taking photos.

I'm impatient to see the new HSR stations built to serve these wonderful trains

I can't remember having heard anything about freight trains on the Ankara-Konya line. I guess they will keep using the old conventional line. There is a project to connect Bursa with a ca. 150 km highspeed line to the Ankara-Istanbul highspeed line, you can see it on the map posted above. I think Bursa will be connected within 3-5 years. Regarding Trabzon, no projects so far and Antalya is being mentioned again and again but it won't happen within the or next decade I guess.
