Train from Istanbul to Tahran
 
Hi ;

I proudly announce that 10:00 GMT today, i have changed the regulations of train carriage of Turkey.

Before it was not possible to load a bike to international lines such as Istanbul-Tehran Istanbul-Damascus or Tehran-Damascus and vice versa.

But from now on its possible and my motorcycle will be the first to travel from Ankara to Tehran.

I had to take the train due to severe weather conditions in east part of Turkey.

You can look for details in www.tcdd.gov.tr which is also avaliable in english.

Nice trips ,

Roads of eastern part of Turkey is no worse then the rest of the country. Cant be compared to EU standarts but "ridable". The bad part is that, roads are passing throught high altitudes and those "passages" are cold even in summer.

The prices of carriage is ~ 42 cents/kg. first 30 kg. is exempted and fare is Ankara-Tabriz. 39 Euro and Tahran is 52 Euro.

Can be considered in case of weather conditions or to Europe after a trip to Asia.

Nice trips to all ,

As the moderator of the topic , i should keep people updated about the subject http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/ubb/smile.gif ;

Its possible to load motorcycle to Istanbul -Tehran train but impossible to unload it before Tehran.

Therefore i have to go back to Turkey WITH train and get in from Bazargan (Iran ) again( i got off in Tebriz ).

Funny & irritating but true.
