Those 2 lines are existing? Or only the 1st? The grey one looks like it should be still under construction.

This page hasn't got any update for 8 years, and I didn't even know its presence.

New and very complex system map

Eskişehir selects Škoda to supply catenary-free trams
05 Sep 2016



TURKEY: Škoda Transportation announced on September 5 that it is to supply 14 trams capable of catenary-free operation to Eskişehir. They are to be delivered within 19 months of signing the contract, which is worth €26m.

Škoda beat Turkish manufacturer Bozankaya to supply trams to Turkey’s only metre gauge tram network. The low-floor ForCity Classic trams will be equipped with batteries to allow off-wire operation on a planned 1 km section that will have no catenary. The unidirectional trams will be 30 m long with capacity for 276 passengers. They will have four sets of double doors and two single doors, and will be equipped with air-conditioning

Why not?

Bombardier did not take part in tender so it is their problem, Skoda is a very good manufacturer.

Yes I know, Konya replaced its old trams with new Skoda ones, I heard they are good. Also Eskisehir's design better than Konya's. But Bombardier products always have a special place in my heart, you know.

Let's not call it childish. I didn't say one bad thing about Skoda. If they are good, Bombardier products are better; if they are perfect, I'm sure that they are not as perfect as Bombardier's. One thing I can be sure is Skoda can be good but is not in the same league with Bombardier.

Let me throw another hat into the ring and say Skoda is better than Bombardier. That'll teach ya!

I find it very interesting that this new modern system has been rather sensibly designed as looped and unidirectional, like all the traditional systems in Europe - bucking the modern trend for bidirectional, stubbed operation. I wonder why they chose to do this?

Also I wonder why they chose metre gauge when they had the opportunity to start from new and choose standard gauge?
