Izmir 2007 3941.jpg

The Alsancak railroad station seems to have lost its function. I saw neither a train nor tickets being sold, just empty waiting rooms and platforms.

Yes it is right. The regular rail system lost it's function in Izmir, and i am not sure but i think all local train fairs has been stopped. Since five years Municipality of Izmir and TCDD ( Turkish Rail Roads Company) has been working together in order to improve city's local transportation system and these roads and stations will be used in new light rail project (combined regular rail roads and subways with fast trains) pretty soon, hopefully in couple years. This Rail Road project starts from southest point fo the city and ends northest point (from Menderes to Menemen) which will be approximately 100 km distance.
