London to Istanbul by train? So want to do this trip!
London to Istanbul by Train - Rail Pass & Route Options

London to Istanbul by train is one of the world's classic train journeys. It's a great trip to take with an Interrail or Eurail Pass. You don't need the luxury of the Orient Express..although that would be nice!

Getting a Japan Rail Pass is the best way to travel. Japanese trains are fast, quirky, comfortable, clean and respected by the people who travel on them.

Already looking forward to my next trip :-)

Love the 0 Series Shinkansen!
0 Series Shinkansen Driver

Cherished the moments sat in the cockpit of a '0 Series Shinkansen'. The world's first high-speed

Known as the bullet train (as are modern versions), on it's maiden passenger journey it swiftly reached speeds of 210km/h or 130.5mph. Not bad for 1964!

The team that worked on it were known as 'The Crazy Gang' as no-one believed they'd pull it off.

Tokyo to Osaka (320 mile journey) took 3 hours and 10 minutes, compared with the conventional train which took 6 hours and 30 minutes.

Here's to 'The Crazy Ones' 😉
