The company was built in 1903. It originally secured a concession given to the Anatolian Railway Company to build a railway from Konia to Baghdad to the Persian Gulf. This project was driven by the Deutsche Bank, while acting in the interest of the German Empire. The First World War interrupted the project. At that time, just a part of Eskisehir to Ankara, and the mountain railway through the Taurus Mountains were completed. In 1932 the lines which were at Mesopotamian territory came to Iraq. There was no compensation therefore. Railway track at the Anatolian territory came in 1923 to Turkey. In 1940 the last part of the approximately 3,200 kilometres of railway track were completed. Die 1903 gegründete Bagdadbahn sicherte die ursprünglich der Anatolischen Eisenbahn erteilte Konzession zum Bau einer Bahn von Konia über Bagdad bis hin zum Persischen Golf. Getrieben wurde dieses Vorhaben von der Deutschen Bank, die dabei im Interesse des deutschen Kaiserreiches handelte. Doch beim Bau der Bagdadbahn kam der Erste Weltkrieg dazwischen. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt waren gerade einmal ein Teilstück von Eskişehir nach Ankara sowie die Gebirgsbahn über das Taurusgebirge von Haidarpascha bis Djerablus am Oberlauf des Euphrat fertiggestellt. 1932 fielen die auf mesopotamischem Gebiet gelegenen Strecken entschädigungslos an den Irak. Die auf anatolischem Gebiet gelegenen Strecken wurden von den Alliierten 1919 beschlagnahmt und fielen 1923 an die Türkei. 1940 wurde das letzte Teilstück der rund 3.200 km langen Bahnstrecke fertiggestellt.
