Turkish and Hungarian state railways have agreed to reestablish a direct rail service between Budapest and Istanbul in 2012, Hungarian railways MAV said on Tuesday.
Trains are expected to start operating along a picturesque route through Romania and Bulgaria from the middle of next year, MAV told MTI.
The company expects major interest from western Europe and north America for the service, which was first launched in 1889, but later suspended.
