In Istanbul there are different names for the several means of transport on rails. I here use one term for them all. I remember the first time I could travel from the airport to Aksaray station, what a joy. But the system is growing at a fast rate, and is projected to grows much, much larger than the current one. During a 2014 visit I used the system a lot, and took some pictures at a number of stations and in some cases the streets nearby. I here group those together.
There were two major developments: a bridge across the Golden Horn now shortens travel time from the southern part of town to the northern one (both on the European side), and a tunnel now connects Europe and Asia, in about four minutes you make that “crossing” on what’s called Marmaray.

I intend to add some pictures from earlier visits. I tried identifying the location, in some cases I don’t remember (and gps does not work underground). So I also show some of the (often amazing) tiles panels and similar ornamentation of the stations.
