The book covers many topics related to the railway life, from the forgotten wagons to the deer, the train crash, from the pigeons of Ankara Gar to the subtleties of the professional life of the machinist.

In the book with content that will open new debates in the Turkish railway literature with its original subjects and style, the removal of the law envisaging the death penalty for those who damage the railway is described as follows:
“Open and see the Official Gazette dated July 14, 2004; You will see the phrase 'Articles 30.5.1283 and 1 of the Regulation on the Procedure of Railways dated 2' and you will wonder what this first article will be.
Those who said this first article are as follows: 'To introduce or to disrupt the movement of the cars, to prevent or disrupt the railways, or to disrupt the movement of the cars, or to disrupt the current route in the presence of the railway station. If he does not take a day off injury due to this movement, he is imprisoned from one year to three years, and if his movement is destroyed, he will be executed and if he is confiscated, he will be punished with a rowing penalty. '
Now, on May 30, 1283, that is, if you say why the termination of this punishment, which entered the Turkish Law literature in 1867, waited until 2004, those who settled the law, the law must be abolished by law, even if there is no penalty for rowing punishment ... ”
- “Train is a relative for our people” -
Mehmet Aycı, AA correspondent, said in a statement, the railways began to be made as an instrument of colonialism around the world, except the Hejaz Railway to the Ottoman geography of the preferred railways is a result of colonialism, he said.
The perception of Turkish people's rail is very different from the general rail perception in the world.
“Our people regarded the train as a relative, as a person whose songs were burned and lullabies were sung rather than as a vehicle. Although the construction of the railroad was considered as a modernization project with the Republican era and as a result of this, modernization has spread to the bottom, it is necessary to see the devotion of our people to the train outside of these designs. Of course, there are also unknown information, subtleties, details about railways. The articles in the book are mostly about the railroad life and railway culture. ”
