Actually right now, it is not possible, many countries and also some parts of Turkey are not ready yet . But in the future it will be.

it is an old map. Even in Turkey some new lines is planned wich are not shown at this map (the line to Bulgarian-Greek border). I guess other countries have some changes too.

Izmir Regional Rail upgrating project is almost complated. It is a joint project of TCDD and Izmir Metropolitan Municipality. Line is called Aliağa-Menderes, wich also connect the airport to the city, aka "Egeray" in Turkish.

Maybe we could consider it metro because it will be metro in the city and will be direct access to the all metro lines of Izmir,but connect the city to North and South of the region.



TCDD bought these electric train sets from Spanish CAF



-----------------------------------------------------

Izmir-Denizli Fiat MT5700 Diesel Regional Trains. ROTEM diesel will take its place in a while. (probably they will send to another route)

It is possible via the Transsib and the distance via Transsib is shorter. So it makes no sence to go from Shanghai to London via the Bosporus.

Imj feeling sorry for Haydarpaşa. In all European countries, such great train stations continue their main missions and no government wants to turn them into hotels.

Those signers do not say that we should use those disgusting trains. They do want newer air-conditioned trains. However do we have to close Haydarpaşa and destroy our historic rail infrastructure for that? What they want to see is a 2010 train in Haydarpaşa.

And yuo also ask what will Yedikule or Samatya people will do when Marmaray starts. First learn, than have an idea please! There is another subway line wich is already planned between Yenikapı and Bakırköy.

This tunnel the best thing ever happened in this city in the name of public transportation.

And don't worry for Haydarpaşa's future anymore (wich is completely another issue)
Marmaray does not seem a reasonable reason for closing our 100-old RR stn. The station can be linked to Marmaray so you can ride a train to Paris from Haydarpaşa.
