Haydarpasa train station (2007)

Built in 1909 by the Anatolian Railway (CFOA) as the western terminus of the Baghdad and Hedjaz railways, Haydar Pasha Train Station is a railway terminal in Istanbul. Until 2012 the station was a major intercity, regional and commuter rail hub as well as the busiest railway station in Turkey. Haydarpaşa, along with Sirkeci Terminal (on the other side of the Bosphorus), are Istanbul’s two intercity and commuter railway terminals. As of 19 June 2013 all train service to the station has been indefinitely suspended due to the rehabilitation of the existing line for the new Marmaray commuter rail line. On 28 November 2010 a fire caused by carelessness during the building’s restoration destroyed the roof and the 4th floor of the terminal building. Photo from 2007, before the fire in 2010.
