TCDD’s long distance services


Train completely cancelled because of engineering works

Four of the sixteen services (i.e. one quarter of the entire service) are completely suspended at present. These four trains are:

Ege Ekspresi

This formerly ran İzmir (Alsancak) Balıkesir and return, but is currently suspended because of the engineering work taking place between Soma and Balıkesir.

Ege Express (Kutahya-Balikesir) timetable, options and ticketing

İçanadolu Mavi Treni

This formerly ran Adana – Konya – Afyon – Istanbul (Haydarpasa) and return, conveying sleeping car, restaurant car, and seating coaches. In recent years it was cut back to run Adana – Konya and return conveying seating coaches only. It is currently suspended because of the engineering work taking place between Karaman and Konya.

Erciyes Ekspresi

This formerly ran Adana – Kayseri and return conveying seating coaches only. It is currently suspended because of engineering work taking place between Kayseri and Ulukışla.

Erciyes Express (Adana-Kayseri) timetable, options and ticketing

4 Eylül Mavi Treni

This formerly ran Ankara – Kayseri – Sivas – Malatya and return, conveying couchettes, restaurant car, and seating coaches. It is currently suspended because of the Baskentray works at Ankara.

  1. That’s a really useful list – especially the links through to the services showing a map of the running route.

    During happier days in Syria in 2005, I took the Toros express between Haydarpaşa and Halep (Aleppo) with just a single old Syrian sleeping car attached to the end of the otherwise modern Turkish train.

    Hopefully the Turkish rail network can host reliable services again once this current period of frenetic infrastructure renewal is over.

  2. I would like to travel by train from :
    Şanliurfa to ankara to Kastamonu.
    On 15 march afternoon?
