Sorry, it's an old 2013 story. What's wrong with me? It's been a long week...

After a gap of about 2 years, passenger train services have restarted in European Turkey. The train is formed of three air-conditioned coaches, hauled by one of the new E68 class electric locomotives. It operates every day to the following schedule:
81721
Kapikule depart 07:10, Cerkezkoy arrive 09:56.
81726
Cerkezkoy depart 11:10, Uzunkopru arrive 13:24.
81724
Uzunkopru depart 14:45, Cerkezkoy arrive 16:55.
81724
Cerkezkoy depart 19:18, Kapikule arrive 22:07.
Intermediate stations served are Edirne (81721 / 4 only), then Pehlivankoy, Alpullu, Luleburgaz, Muratli, and Corlu.
Full schedules are on the TCDD website.
When I travelled on it earlier this week, we encountered a delay of about 20 minutes on the Pehlivankoy - Uzunkopru section because the signalling is not yet commissioned. A bus shuttle meets the train at Uzunkopru station to take passengers to the town centre (about 5 km distant).

No, unfortunately the plan to restart cross-border trains has been shelved and will not happen this year. This is a time slot reserved for them in the 2015/2016 schedule, but when they will resume is unknown. It would technically of course be possible to let them run until CerkezkŲy too, but apparently TCDD, BDZ, and CFR apparently do not find that feasible.

No, BDZ has shown that sleeper as running all the time, not bothering to show that it was actually only operating a very uncomfortable Halberstadter sitting coach on that line and that to boot, TCDD kicks everybody out at the border and dumps them in a bus in the middle of the night.
If you trust BDZ's schedules as the truth, you will have some surprises while traveling. Let us hope that the situation will change sometime soon, but do not hold your breath.

Do you think that Marmaray will ever be completed, or will Istanbul remain trainless forever?

Not looking good at the moment, 2018 at the earliest, and we have yet to see the vigorous activity we were promised after the new government formed. Past experience though shows that rail modernization always lasts until the moment when everyone has forgotten the train line ever existed and TCDD then announce what a wonderful job they have done. With the Istanbul line, there is at least a little bit of political pressure, so by 2020 at the latest I would say....

Rail enthusiastic website kentvedemiryolu.com has started a signing campaign to protect the historic railroads of this amazing city.

Rail enthusiastics! Do not let İstanbul become "trainless"!
Looks like i was right 8 years ago when i posted that. I knew that the completion of the Marmaray will be postponed again and again and again, not to mension perfectly-functioning rail lines being closed and millions of people being tortured traffic jams for a long time

Marmaray is a metro system. It is not a railway. I often use it, I know what it is.

Marmaray is a rail system being upgraded to metro standards,
this doesn't make it a metro.

metro is a lower system then railway, how can it be upgated? Marmaray is directly a metro system, it is impossible to be a railway. You can call it suburban rail, but not a railway.

No, Boppard. Marmaray is two things:

1) the development project to upgrade the railway lines in Istanbul, including Bosporus tunnel link.

2) the suburban rail line that will be operated on the new and upgraded sections.

If we are talking about 1), this includes the operation of long-distance trains on these rails. The way the system is designed, long-distance trains can use all 3 of the future tracks. While there are always exceptions to the rules, a metro implies a line purposely built just for city commutes, not integrated into intercity routes. Suburban rail historically has developed from setting aside tracks or upgrading sections of long-distance railway lines. Marmaray is definitely the latter.
