  1. Thanks, Onur. Very interesting and useful information. It is a shame, however that EsTram doesn’t actually call at the station, especially for passengers with luggage, etc.

  2. While the new tunnel section was being built, there used to be a level crossing between the trams and the main line from Eskisehir to Ankara, near the current Espark tram stop. This was controlled by a man with a flag; when the bell rang to say a main line train was coming, the man with the flag would emerge from his hut and flag down any trams to a halt, until the main line train had passed. It was quite bizarre to travel on a YHT and see trams waiting to cross immediately after you passed! This unusual operation ceased once the new tunnels opened.
