I have always been fascinated with Turkey and Istanbul.
Too bad pictures are small.

Nice photos


Now Istambul is investing in improving the rail system... Light Rail, metro...
The metro stations look great and modern, but trains are exactly the same as the metro system of Caracas... curious. I suposse that both are built by same builder (Alstom).

Is there any plan for a rail link between Europe and Asia????

Geez, the underground passages are too long. You could run a 2 stop bus route in there. Not a fan of the interior colors of the stock.

Istanbul has historically been a great transit city, a cosmopolitan bridge between Asia & Europe. Any plans for a trans-Bosphorus metro tube to link the rail networks on both sides?

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.
