3 types of trains:
1st. The old Tünel train.
2nd. The one you say.
3rd. The light metro from Aksaray to Ataturk airport.

Of course, there is no need to do this right now...but if there were a train running frequent service in the valley....

I love the tiles in the heritage funicular too...

Funiculars may be interesting as a tourist attraction, but they are not very efficient in carrying large numbers of passengers. Istanbul is a city with many diverse and poorly interconnected railway systems.

In which other city is it necessary to transfer from a heavy subway to funicular and then to a light rail in order to get to the city center?

Hopefully things will change when Marmaray project is completed. This, in combination with Yenikapi interchange, will give Istanbul an integrated network.

There are a few around the world, well, in Europe at least (though Isreal I think also has one)

Istanbul is blessed with a beautiful historical one as well.

But I agree with nastyathenian on the state of Istanbul's public transport. When I visited last year, I thought a damn lot could be improved.

Istanbul / Light Rail & Tram System




Trams

Line T1
A fast tram (T1) was put in service in 1992 on standard gauge track with modern cars, connecting Sirkeci with Topkapı. The line was extended on one end from Topkapı to Zeytinburnu in March 1994 and, on the other end from Sirkeci to Eminönü in April 1996. On January 30, 2005 it was extended from Eminönü to Fındıklı, crossing the Golden Horn on the Galata Bridge after 44 years without tram service on the bridge. A final extension to Kabataş opened in June 2006. The line has 24 stations on a length of 14 km. Service was initially operated with 22 LRT vehicles built by ABB, now reassigned to other lines; stations were provided with temporary high platforms. These vehicles were replaced by 55 low-floor Bombardier Flexity Swift trams in 2003. An entire trip takes 42 minutes. The daily transport capacity is 155,000 passengers. The amount of investment totaled US$110 million.

Hızlı Tramway stations are: Zeytinburnu, Mithatpaşa, Akşemsettin, Seyitnizam, Merkezefendi, Cevizlibağ, Topkapı, Pazartekke, Çapa, Fındıkzade, Haseki, Yusufpaşa, Aksaray, Laleli (Üniversite), Beyazıt (Kapalıçarşı), Çemberlitaş, Sultanahmet, Gülhane, Sirkeci, Eminönü (ferryboats), Karaköy, Tophane, Fındıklı, Kabataş.

In June 2006, a modern underground funicular was opened at Kabataş to connect this line to metro in Taksim.

Line T2
In September 2006, a second tram line (T2) was added running west from Zeytinburnu to Bağcılar. Service on this line is operated with 14 ABB LRT cars. Stations have high platforms at the level of the car floor.

It's amazing that such a large city has such a small mass transit system. What's that new tunnel/rail thing they're building?

True, Istanbul lack of rail system thats why we have too much buses around..but after the completion of "Marmaray" project in 2010, Istanbul's rail transport fraction will be third largest in the world.

Detalied thread about the project;

Does anybody else feel that Istanbul & Turkey are being overrepresented in the forums these days?

What are the limitations to call this an overrepresentation ?
