    (posted comment again as had not checked “notify via email” box – I think that should be checked by default – also site is a little slow)

  3. I’ve read that the new fast rail , from samsun to Ankara it’s going to get there in 90 mins . That is amazing, who needs to fly when you can get there in half the time.

    • Great. But has it been officailly approved yet? Can you put a link please.
