TCDD Statistics

The statistical data given here below are from the World Bank Railway Database. In the case of Turkey, these data are gathered from the Annual Report published by TCDD. These data are preliminary meant for economic studies but they give some insight about the size and scale of TCDD. The data are reported since 1980 and this gives the long term trends at TCDD.
