When the digging for M2 started, were the tram tracks of pre 1966 system (covered by asphult) opened? If yes, please write readers' experience.

[QUOTE=Baron Hirsch;47086711*Is there any remaining present of the previous tram system in Istanbul, which was closed in 1966?
- no tracks whatsoever. Possibly, some tram depot somewhere...
[/QUOTE]

Can anybody write here about the former depots/ snap photos of those depots?

When the track laying of Nostalgik, Moda & Cagdas tramvay started, were the tracks of former system's (covered by asphult) opened? If yes, please write about those here. Waiting eagerly.

Can anybody say about the places of those grayscale photos posted above by me?



I've created this map by studying internet, comparing both old and now tram lines. Is this map correct? Please send reply.

In the map you made at asian side you should correct as "Altiyol" you wrote aitriyal.
And in European you wrote harbin and this should be "Harbiye"
the map is almost correct.
A. The former depots as i know are as follows.
Asian side- Bağlarbaşı , Hasanpaşa
European side- Aksaray , Beşiktaş, Şişli
B. Nostalgic Moda tracks are not older tracks they were made totally new on the former tram route mostly.
C.the places in your pictures are,
1.Laleli 2.Galatasaray 3.Galata bridge 4.Pangalti 5.Taksim 6.Karakoy or Galata 7.Galata bridge 8.Galata bridge 9.Eminonu 10.Fatih 11.Galata bridge 12.Eminonu 13.Taksim

The digging of M2 started in 1992.
When the old tram system closed in 1966 all the tram tracks were removed in time.So there are no any covered tracks existing under asphalt in Istanbul .

In the map it says it is a busway, not a tram or a metro line.

It is "metrobüs" A special buslane used by high capacity buses, similar capacity to tramways.

Interesting, thanks. In France these bus lines in dedicated lanes have often been used as a precursor for tram lines. Sortof like, "testing the market" at an affordable price. I speculate the authorities in Istanbul may have similar thoughts? The metrobus line (or at least the part from Zeytinburnu and eastward) looks like urban planners' dream location for a circular light rail line.

We wish that would be the case. Several people have suggested this, but it is considered by the municipality as a fast and cheap to build alternative to regular metro lines. While regular metro construction has taken years, these bus lanes were built in a matter of months. As the bus lane is presently the only rapid transit system spanning a large part of the city from East to West (at least until 2013 when the first RER-style line MArmaray is finished) it is used to the limits of its capacity and beyond.

Probably the only Example of the world, that two subway lines – (present running red & future running cyan) will be separate, and will not connect by metro. It’ll be connected by light rail.

Recently I found three very good links of Istanbul tram –
1) For pre 1966 tram, click – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trams_in_Istanbul
2) For heritage tram, click – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Istanbul_nostalgic_tram
3) For modern tram, click - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Istanbul_modern_tram
