Having Iran built most railway stations in the last 50 years shows interesting solutions of modern architecture mixed with Persian elements. Some of the major stations, like Tehran, Mashad, Tabriz, Esfahan, Yazd and Shiraz have monumental characters and show great elegance. With many destinations having few trains during the day, stations may be deserted for hours and get crowded only during arrival or departure times. Passengers will wait in the station building until their train call, mostly like boarding a plane. Before boarding, ID card must be show, foreigners must show their passport before passing gate. Also, tickets will be checked and, once arriving on the platform, railway staff will be helpful to find a reserved seat or compartment and to board the train. Large stations do have ticket counters selling remaining tickets for the same day, but you usually buy your ticket in advance as trains may already be fully book. Boarding train without reservation is not allow. With many destinations connected to the railway network in recent years, not all stations are located within central areas. In smaller cities along lines from Tehran to Tabriz, Ahvaz, Kashan, Mashad and Gorgan, you can usually reach them by foot from the center. In large cities like Tehran, Mashad, Tabriz, Yazd or Ahvaz stations can be reached with public transport, while it is necessary to cover large distance between the city center and stations of Esfahan and Shiraz by taxi. Distances between stations and ports of Bandar Abbas and Khorramshahr are best covered by taxi. Tehran central Station is connected by metro line 3. The name of the metro stop is Rah Ahan. In Shiraz, nearest metro stop to Railway Station is Mirzaye Shirazi. The taxi between this stop and Railway Station is about 15 minutes. The new Esfahan highspeed Station will be much closer to the center, near Kaveh bus terminal. Mashad and Esfahan are building new metro lines which will connect to railway stations in the near future. Stations may have a few kiosks selling snacks, books or newspapers, but usually no restaurant or shopping mall is available. Waiting rooms are comfortable, mostly air conditioned and have TV or movie entertainment. Some stations have luggage deposit. There is always a charging station for mobiles, tablets and smartphones. Usually you get timetable information in English at the help desk. This includes information about arrival times and intermediate stops which are almost unavailable on the Internet or in printed form. With Iran governed by theocratic systems, all stations have mosque or prayer room and large bathroom facilities for ritual ablution. Stations all over the country are clean, well kept and safe.

Booking train tickets

The railway network converges on Tehran and connects all main parts of the country except the Southeast. Importantly, Iran is at the crossroads of East-West and North-South transportation corridors that are active or potentially active. The Western railway extension links Turkey at the Razi-Kapikoi border. The Northern connection to Azerbaijan, Caucasus, and Russia has a bogie-changing station at the border at Jolfa. Southern routes connect Tehran to the Persian Gulf ports of Bandar Imam and Bandar Abbas. The line to the Caspian Sea ends at the terminal of Amir Abad and Bandar Turkmen and is part of the North-South corridor to Russia and Scandinavia. The North-East corridor connects Mashad and continues further to the bogie-changing station at Sarakhs. For the landlocked countries of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan, this line provides access to the sea. Recent connection from Mashad to Bafq has significantly shortened access to the harbor of Bandar Abbas. With up to 500 km of new lines per year, Iran's railway has one of the quickest growing networks in the world. Many new destinations have been added since last years and new services have been introduced on existing lines. By 2020, Iran expects to reach every regional capital by rail. New lines are under construction to Rasht on Caspian Sea, Hamedan, Sanandaj, Kermanshah, and Urumieh. The high-speed line to Esfahan and the new, faster line between Mianeh and Tabriz are nearly complete. Electrification of the main line between Tehran and Mashad has started where trains will soon be able to travel at 200 km / h.
