Alsancak Railway Station Izmir

Alsancak Railway Station Izmir
The Alsancak Railway Station or Alsancak Terminal in Izmir is the second oldest railway station in Turkey (the Kemer Railway Station, also in Izmir, is the oldest) completed in 1858 and is today one of the busiest stations in the country.  

The Oriental Railway Company (ORC) chose Alsancak as a station site as it was close to the docks making it faster to transport agriculture from outlying fields and as
there were many wealthy foreign and Ottoman business moguls living in Bornova and Buca, at that time suburbs of Izmir, making their commute to work much easier.  Further tracks were laid and maintenance depots, train-sheds and freight depots were built, along with an extension to Alsancak’s dockyard, and in 1871 a new station was erected, mainly to serve the wealthy, with the addition of the clock tower which was the first of its kind in Izmir.  The Alsancak Terminal became electrified in 2001 and has intercity trains going to Ankara , Bandirma , Afyon and Usak along with commuter trains to Menderes and Aliaga .
