TRAINS

Trains
travel comfortable with Iranian Railways
Iranian trains offer safe and comfortable connections to almost every major destination in the country. Most long distance trains are operated by private companies which offer different standard from good to highest. Regional trains are provided with comfortable and fast trainsets.

Iran is a huge country with extended arid and desert plains. Settlements are concentrated in areas where abundant water is available, with distances of hundreds of kilometers between the major cities. According to this pattern railways offer mainly long distance connections, with usually at least one overnight train per line and a few daytime connections on some lines. Some relations are not served every day but two or three times a week. All connections are structured to be direct. This means you will not have to change at any station during your travel (and you hardly will find any timetable permitting changes). Local or regional service has been introduced in the last decades but it is available only in few areas. Never expect to take a train to cover a distance of just 50-80 kms except in urban regions. On long distances railway is often the fastest available land transport, more comfortable than road connections and of course safer and more environmental friendly.

With up to 500 km of new lines per year Iran's railway has one of the quickest growing networks in the world. Many new destinations have been added since the last years and new services have been introduced on existing lines. New lines are under construction to Bandar Anzali on the Caspian Sea, to Ardebil, to Chabahar on the Indian Ocean, to Khorramabad, to Sanandaj as well as connections to the rail networks of Azerbaijan at Astana and of Iraq at Basra as well as to Herat in Afghanistan.
