Eastern Express Route 2020: The Eastern Express, which is especially popular among the young mass, exits Ankara and reaches Kars from Kırıkkale, Kayseri, Sivas, Erzincan and Erzurum. Waiting for 5-10 minutes at the central stations, the Eastern Express departs from Ankara Station every day at 17.55 and arrives at Kars Station at 18.30 the next day. There are 10 Compartments in the couchette cars and 4 people can travel in each compartment. Sheets, pique and pillow are provided by TCDD Tasimacilik AS, and the seats in the compartment can be used as a bed when requested. The dining car features 14 seats, 47-52 seats.

Due to the natural beauty of the train, travelers and photographers demand the East Express, which is the busiest season of the summer season, and travels usually take place with pulman wagons. During the winter months, requests from different occupational groups such as hiking groups, photographers, mountaineering groups, university students and teachers are usually made to bunk cars. The preference of these groups starts at the end of December and continues until the middle of March.

Dinner wagons in the East Express are 4 tables each. The wagon includes breakfast, soup, hot food, cold sandwiches and hot / cold drinks. The restaurant does not have a specific opening-closing time. Open 7/24.

Touristic East Express Seat and Wagon Types

There are basically 3 types of seats and wagons to travel, except for the food wagon:

  • Pulman (East Express): They are standard seat wagons. Each row has 2 double and 1 single seat. The seats do not lie down, but the seats are wide. It is the most comfortable and less comfortable seat type available in the Eastern Express only.
  • Covered Bunks (Eastern Express): It is in a compartment and is for 4 people, the seats become beds in bunk beds. It is an alternative ticket type to the Touristic East Express especially for groups, families and young people. Clean linens are provided. It is running out quickly, as it runs out quickly and is affordable.
  • Sleeping Wagon (New East Express): Room and double occupancy. The door is lockable and there is a refrigerator, table and washbasin in it. It provides maximum comfort and special space, making it one of the favorites for those traveling on the East Express as a couple. It is the fastest consuming ticket type and has been removed from the East Express and put in the Touristic East Express only. All wagons in the Touristic East Express are only bedded!

Sleeping Wagon or Covered Bunks Mi Preference

The reason why couples choose beds, deprivation and romance can be experienced in a closed-door environment, so sleepers are the first choice for two people, but don't focus directly on the sleeping wagon. Although it may seem a bit more comfortable due to the table and sink inside the sleeping car, it can be more comfortable in places covered by things such as how much the user has and things like landscaping. In our opinion, the covered bunks for 2 or 4 people also seem to be a very good option.

  • The covered and covered wagons have the same area. One-on-one same compartment, only differently furnished. There are two armchairs with covered bunks, they open and become beds. The bed is a side bed, the other is a huge table and sink.
  • If you have lots of goods, you should definitely prefer the covered bunks. You have the chance to stack your belongings in the empty seats or in one of the upper beds. There is little in excess of the bed for suitcases.
  • There's a big table in bed. The table in the veiled bundle is extremely small. 4 people share the size of a plane table. A journey that lasts more than 1 day requires serious tables. This problem is solved if you make a table using your luggage.
  • Only 1 person can sit on the edge of the bed and 2 people can travel by the window. Someone is going in the opposite direction but that's it :)

NOTE: If you decide to have a bundle (only in the Touristic East Expert), you need to buy all 4 seats. Otherwise, you will have to share the compartment with people you don't want.

Which one is easy to find tickets?

Only 2 + 1 Pulman and Covered Bunk seat types are available in the East Express, while the only only type of sleeper seat is available in the Tourist East Express. Therefore, there is no option for the new Touristic East Express; For the Eastern Express, there are two options: covered and 2 + 2 pulman seats. Both are a good option. If you are going to travel like a bus and use a dinner wagon, you can choose a 1 + 2 pulman with a seat and a covered bird if you want to sleep comfortably at night.

How to go in the pulm?

Traveling to Pulmanda is not much different than going to Kars by bus. So the East Express experience is not the ideal place to live. It is an option of choice for those who want to take the train for transportation purposes only. There's even room for February. You can spend most of your time in the dining car, but alcoholic drinks are not sold and the menu is very poor!

As a result of the increasing interest in the Eastern Express, only the Touristic Eastern Express, which has a sleeping car and a restaurant, was included. While intense interest continues in the East Express, the addition of sleeping cars to the Touristic East Express and the expensive of the East Tour Express causes the East Express to draw intense attention.
