Konya Mavi Tren Konya – İzmir

A nightly sleeper train runs between İzmir (Basmane Station) and Konya, the Konya Mavi Tren.

The train departs İzmir (Basmane) at 21:05 (9:05 pm) hauling Pullmancouchette and sleeping car, and a dining car. Stopping at Manisa, Afyon and Uşak along the way, it arrives in Konya at 09:28 am the next morning (if it’s on time).

From Konya, departure is at 19:30 (7:30 pm), stopping at Afyonat 00:18 (12:18 am), and arriving in İzmir (Basmane) at 07:17 am, although he last time I rode this train it was 45 minutes late arriving in İzmir.

Breakfast in the dining car as Anatolia speeds by…

High-speed trains may some day connect Konya and İzmir, at which time the Konya Mavi Tren may be withdrawn from service.
