Gaziantep station is a station in Gaziantep, southeastern Turkey. Politicians claim a high speed train will stop here.[1]

History[edit]

The station was built in 1953, when the Turkish State Railways built a branch line from Narlı to Gaziantep. The station building was completed in 1959 and the line was continued to Karkamış, where it connected to the former Baghdad Railway. The station became a major hub in the southeast, with trains to Baghdad, Adana, Halep and Malatya.
