The Basmane-Nazilli Regional (Turkish: Basmane-Selçuk-Nazilli Bölgesel) is a regional rail service operated by the Turkish State Railways. The trains use the former ORC mainline from İzmir to Nazilli, a distance of 175 km (109 mi). Service from İzmir to Nazilli dates back to 1882, when the Oriental Railway Company opened the line. The Stat Railways took over the line in 1935 and operated the Basmane-Denizli Regional as well as the discontinued Lakes Express to Isparta, also servicing Nazilli. In 2009, the Basmane-Selçuk-Nazilli regional opened as a new service on the line, this new service runs together with the Basmane-Selçuk-Denizli Regional. The Basmane-Selçuk-Nazilli regional acts as an express to the Basmane-Selçuk-Denizli regional, skipping a few stations the other stops at.
