I can't see them going, there are still boats in Hong Kong and crossing the Straight of Dover. The tunnel will induce some demand and reduce congestion.

The construction of a cross border tunnel is currently causing delay. Don't expect the whole BTK line to be ready before 2014.

[TR] E6800: the new locomotive for Turkey



Above a impression of the future E6800 locomotive for the Turkish railways (TCDD). The delivery of this new generation of locomotives should start this year.

Hyundai-Rotem will deliver 80 such locomotives with 5 MW power to TCDD. It will have a top speed of 140 kph and will be used, predominantly, for freight services. Eight units will be built in South-Korea, with the rest to be assembled locally in co-operation with Tülomsas. Skoda from the Czech Republic is sub-contractor for the delivery of the electrical part of the new locomotives.

close news

update 2011|04|07

[TR/KO/CZ] Skoda and Hyundai-Rotem deliver to Turkey
On 20.12.2010, Hyundai-Rotem from South-Korea and the Tukish state railways (TCDD) signed a contract for the delivery of 80 electric locomotives with 5 MW power. Eight will be built in South-Korea, with the rest to be assembled locally in co-operation with Tülomsas. This order is worth 330 million US dollar, and through technology transfer, 35% of this volume will go to the Turkish industry.

However, today we got the news that Hyundai-Rotem has chosen Skoda from the Czech Republic as sub-contractor for the delivery of the electrical part of the new locomotives. We got some more details about the order from this news. The locomotives with a top speed of 140 kph will be used,
predominantly, for freight services. Delivery is scheduled from 2012 until 2014. Skoda will have a share in the order volume up to 40%. How that is arranged in combination with the technology transfer to Turkey is still unknown. - Source.

A number of the above locos have already been seen in Izmir, however apparently not yet in service or testing.

DSV launches Turkey–UK intermodal service

DSV has launched an intermodal service between Turkey and the UK, thereby enhancing its portfolio of road, air and short sea services between the two countries. Two options are available: goods can be sent three times a week direct by rail from the Halkali train terminal in Istanbul to Zeebrugge (Belgium) or Rotterdam, or by short sea services from Istanbul to Trieste (Italy) and then by rail to Zeebrugge or Rotterdam, depending on the final UK destination.

The 45 ft pallet-wide, hi-cube containers are then shipped across to the UK, either straight to the customer or to the DSV hub at Purfleet. The service is a joint venture between two divisions of the DSV Group – DSV Air & Sea and DSV Road, the third-largest logistics operator in Europe. (ben)

Does anyone know anything about this?

Is DSV actually paying for three trains per week between Halkali terminal and Zeebrugge/Rotterdam?

Good work!

This is different to the DSV service of course, but I've since found out more detail about that via the DSV website, oddly enough...

It seems as though things are picking up all of a sudden in terms of rail cargo connections between central Europe and Turkey.

Via Trieste, Kombiverkehr is now running services to-and-from Munich for Turkish trailer traffic and Ewals is teaming up with Saras to running container and swap body traffic for Turkey via Trieste, connecting with Cologne.

DB Schenker Rail expands transport services to Turkey

(Frankfurt, 26 June 2014) In June 2014, DB Schenker Rail expanded its transport services to Turkey, a growth market, and now offers a new traffic connection between Cologne, Germany and Cerkezköy in Turkey. The train connection will start off with one round trip per week and is planned to increase to three per week by the end of the year if required. The trains, which are equipped with special double pocket wagons for the transport of semi-trailers, take five to six days per trip. DB Schenker Rail began offering rail services from Germany southbound towards Turkey with its Bosporus Shuttle in September 2013.

The new transport connection has been set up for the Turkish freight forwarder Ulusoy Logistics, which transferred its existing traffic from road to rail. Prior to the switch, the transport connection was operated via ferry and truck between Western Europe and Turkey. "Our new rail product is the first rail connection that is able to transport semi-trailers directly to their destination in Turkey, 40 kilometers outside of Istanbul. Up to now, this procedure was only possible with containers by rail", commented Andreas Schulz, Head of the Intermodal Industry Sector at DB Schenker Rail.

The transport services are provided internally by DB Schenker Rail's national companies in Germany, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria. In Austria, DB Schenker Rail has a partnership with Lokomotion and works together with the Turkish national rail company, TCDD, in Turkey. "With our national companies, we already have a strong DB Schenker Rail presence in south east Europe
today. Looking at Turkey's position as a growth market, this is a clear advantage that we want to continue to develop in the future", said Hans-Georg Werner, Head of Region East in the DB Schenker Rail Management Board.

Besides the transport handling via rail, DB Schenker also offers terminal and agency services in Germany and Turkey. In addition, a simplified customs procedure is used to significantly reduce the layover time at the Turkish border.

No, the access routes within Istanbul will not be ready before the second half of 2015.
By the way, opening of HSR was initially postponed till July 11, but after the HSR test train crashed into a construction vehicle, further postponement is possible.

China-Turkey high-speed railway

From Hurriyet

New Silk Road

Quote:


http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/mor...&NewsCatID=359


The 6,000-km link will start in Xinjiang and pass through Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran and Turkey to Bulgaria, said Zhao Xiaogang, former chairman of China South Locomotive and Rolling Stock Co (CSR), a leading Chinese industrial manufacturer and exporter.

Zhao is also an adviser to the China Institute for Innovation and Development Strategy.

Passenger train speeds will reach 200 kph and freight trains 160 kph, Zhao told the daily.

Investment in the line will be about $150 billion, Zhao said, adding that it could be largely finished in 2020 and fully completed by 2030.

"It can be regarded as a new Silk Road," he said.

The pace of railway construction in Xinjiang has increased significantly since September, when Chinese President Xi Jinping raised the idea of a Silk Road economic belt. He proposed reviving the ancient trade route connecting China, Central Asia and Europe.

Zhao also said China is considering a 3,000-km line from Yunnan province that would pass through Laos, Thailand and Malaysia to Singapore.

Total investment would be about $75 billion and the project would boost the GDP of China and related countries by $375 billion. The project could be largely finished in 2020 and fully completed in 2025, he said.
