Suitcase on high speed train

Are we allowed to take a suitcase (not carry-on) onto the train, specifically the Ankara-Istanbul YHT? Are there luggage cars or do we take the suitcase on with us?

For high speed trains you are allowed to take 1 piece of 65x50x35 cm or 2 pieces of 55x40x23 luggage. Total weight must not exceed 30kg. Additional luggage costs 10 TL/piece. Max 2 middle-size or 3 small-size luggage allowed.

First oversize luggage will cost 10 TL, and second will cost 30 TL. Max 2 pieces.
