I visited Istanbul in march 2015 and march 2017. Using the line between Ayrılıkçeşmesi and Yenikapı several times I’m very impressed with the system. Spacious trains, clean stations and cars and very affordable with the Istanbul kart. About me: tram driver from Munich/Germany, discovering urban and suburban railway systems around the world.

Have visited many of these places in the last 14 years mostly on overnight sleeper trains
which was fantastic. Trip from Ankara to Kars, Istanbul – Konya, Istanbul – Denizli and Izmir, Adana to Ankara. Al really worth trying. Hope to be able to travel to Baku in future.

Hard to get good info about passenger services in Turkey, especially if one does not speak Turkish (which alas I don’t!) You are doing a terrific job providing this excellent, easy to understand guide to what is available and how to get to places. Many thanks!
