Our railways have been growing and developing through the investments made in recent years.
As a result of these developments, our people from all over the country want railway and train services.
We are endeavoring to meet the demand of our people.
The Eastern Express, which operates between Ankara and Kars, was also one of the most important trains that our passengers showed the most interest and demanded additional flights because they had difficulty in finding tickets.
In addition to our high-speed trains, we are very pleased with the increasing interest and demand for our conventional passenger trains that we rendered comfortable.
In order to meet the demand for the Eastern Express, which is operating between Ankara and Kars, we have launched a second passenger train called the Touristic Eastern Express on the same line.
I wish all the rail and train lovers enjoy it.
The best photos are taken on railroads…
Our railway line between Ankara and Kars is one of the best routes in the world with its natural beauties.
Professional and amateur photographers also show great interest in this line, where fairy-tale journeys take place among the majestic snow-covered mountains and deep valleys, sometimes wandering arm in arm with rivers.
This year, we held the second of the Türk Telekom Tam O ‘An’ National Eastern Express Photo Contest organized for the photographers under the auspices of the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure.
I would like to congratulate our artists who participated in the competition and received awards by reflecting the unique beauties of Anatolian geography in every season to the photo frames.
I would also like to thank our train staff and our dedicated employees who work day and night to ensure safe and uninterrupted operation of trains in all seasons, especially in winter.
Have a nice trip…
