Halkapınar Station is a metro station and garage. Have't you ever traveled with trains?

@sercan, we will learn all projects about Izmir right after the new HSR line construction will be started. A new, modern station will be built in Izmir and Konya. And of course, Bursa will have a modern station too. But only central station project wich is announced is Ankara for now!


@serdar, IC trains of TCDD are more comfortable than buses. Better seats, comfortable resturant and cafes, WC, and you can walk during the travel. But no radio or video service yet.

TCDD trains have wireless-internet service but does it cut when the train goes into a tunnel?

it was about starting, but like always dear mayor of Ankara made some beuroctic justice mistake about construction area and of course court refused and construction delayed. Now they are preparing new one (not project, just beurocratic process) suitable to the laws. I guess everything is delayed to time right before the muncipal elections . Many projects of many other cities are delayed to the elections to use for a fresh propaganda. Elections are in May!

Ankara-Sivas HSR process

Ankara-Sivas HSR process started, it is not just a planned route anymore. Route is projected and the bids for the construction is accepted. The line will be constrcuted in a few phases.

I think first phase of the line starts right after Eskişehir-Ankara cut the test drives and start to operate regularly wich will happen 3, 4 months later!

Did they close all platforms of Haydarpaşa stn for İnt. Railways Symposium. Kentvedemiryolu.com says that Haydarpaşa isn't an exhibition hall.
