The old station was demolished during the construction of current station. But current station looks cool. It is a great masterpiece of Republican architecture. Will the current station continue its purpose after new station is built?

You are extremely right. Even bus stops are better! I hope we will get state-of-art stations with elevators for the disabled. However, historic stations which are suitable for triple-track operations must be used for Marmaray trains. Söğütlüçeşme station will also continue being a station I suppose.

yes it will be.. you can see it at this render very clearly. But it won't be used for HSR. There will be a bridge betwen both terminals.

no, it is very active station. Espacially on weekends, there is no change to find empty seat at Ankara-Istanbul trains.

Izmir Stations

Izmir will be one of the HST destinatins and a new station will be built. It is told that current historical stations will be cancelled. Izmir has two historical train stations and both will be protected as historical heritages but because of the projects of Izmir is not clear yet, we don't know what will happen.

Basmane Main Train Station has been built in 1860's and still in the service for inter city trains. It is the main station of Izmir.






Alsancak Station is another historical station of Izmir







-----------------------------------------------------------------
Eskişehir Station

Eskişehir Main Train Station will be modernized with the operation of HSR. It is an important station with its location that is at the center of Ankara-Istanbul Railway and Ankara-Izmir. It is very active station with this feature and also because of Eskişehir is a student city, students often use trains to Istanbul, Ankara and other directions.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
In Eskişehir it is considered take the rails to the underground at some routes, but nothing is offically announced yet.

Serdar, you meant suburban train. This line is just only one line .There are also intercity, and regional lines. Could you understand?

There are four express train between Izmir and Ankara (two of them stop at some other stations). One express line to Isparta. Also Regional trains to Denizli and Afyon. Plus, recently Express to Balıkesir.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Inter City Express Trains

There are different quality wagons and I think best wagons are Ankara-Istanbul line's. Maxium speed of ICT is 140km/h







My pics from Istanbul-Konya Express (Meram Express)






Pullman Wagon (probably Fatih Express of Istanbul-Ankara)


another pullman wagon




Toilletes


Restaurant Wagon


Compartment Wagon (they are used for both IC and Regional Trains)




Couchette Wagon






Wagon-lit (sleeping coach)





The Disabled Passenger Wagon

I hope they will not demolish Haydarpaşa. Where will trains terminate then? Not all trains might continue throught the tunnel. Also during CR1 WORKS, Trains will terminate at Gebze which too far from the city center( It is not even part of İstanbul but Kocaeli)

You can not demolish Haydarpasa. Its protected

Izmir stadtions are small. Why does Izmir do not have a central station?
