New Railway Baku-Tiblisi-Kars (Turkey)

Postby lissie45 » Mon Mar 20, 2017 3:08 am

OK so I'm a train nerd but this is interesting! Sounds like there is going to be a new railway connecting Georgia and Turkey - coming on stream middle of this year https://www.railwaynews.net/baku-tbilis ... -2017.html railway We plan on being in Georgia in October so if it's open by then will definitely be trying it out.

Kars already has a daily connection to Ankara and onto Istanbul

We will wait and see, this railway line has a storied history. First time they said it was going to be finished in the summer was in 2010

LOL - yeah but 7 years later that's gotta be a reasonable buffer surely?? It would be fun to do if it really does open
