A little journey into the memory of railways
Some are regulated, some to
Sometimes the quarter passes,
Sometimes there are five differentiation,
What does it show, oh, what time?

TCDD İzmir Museum and Art Gallery, which is located in a historic two-storey building built by British merchants in the 1800, invites you to a journey on a busy journey with the iron horses passing through the villages to the savannah at 20-30 kilometers. This museum does not have high-speed trains, high-speed technology, no internet access, nor digital watches in modern gar buildings.
Museum Director Mazlum Beyhan said, “Most of the retired railways come here. Each object stands at the beginning of the photograph, plunging into memories. Sometimes they share their memories with excitement, they describe the year, model, power of the fumes in the photos. They have another meaning for this museum, yüklü he says.
TCDD Museum building was built as a commercial commodity warehouse of British merchants in 1800s. The building, which is within walking distance to the harbor, was later used as the administration of British companies. In the 1990 restored, he converted to Turkey's Railway Museum, which displays objects from many regions.
Mazlum Beyhan, ç The anchor figures in the iron embroidery at the entrance of the building are the best proof that the company is a maritime firm. After the nationalization of the railways, the building, which is the administration of İzmir - Aydın Ottoman Railway Company, served as a lodging for a long time. Demir Beyhan points out that the island where the building is located is an important area for both TCDD and the historical memory of the city.
In front of the palace in front of the elegant historic building on the main street, passing through a small garden. A motorized drezin in the garden and one of the first fire trucks in İzmir salute you. The two-story building has three rooms at the entrance. In fact, the museum, which is a very narrow space, creates the impression that the memory of a city where the foundations of the first railway line of the Ottoman State were piled up or stacked on top of each other. The tightness of the space makes it difficult for you to notice objects.
The small hall at the entrance is equipped with the materials you will encounter when you enter a station. Weighing, leather-covered wooden waiting chair, 19 with timeline and time stop showing train departure times. Ler The miniature steam locomotive in the middle is made of a cast iron stove, on the other side are oil pots, chef train boxes and lanterns.
The room on the right is a small room, which is used by the museum director Mazlum Bey, which features a gallery in the gallery. There are paintings, photographs, original printed books and encyclopedias belonging to the railways compiled by Mazlum Beyhan.
Upon arrival there are two rooms on the left. In the first room, a power plant and a leather operator chair from Balıkesir, a telem machine dated to 1950, lanterns, a station chief table covered with pencil work, a main line power plant for 1860, telegraph machine, a mobile telegraph machine, instructions, red, green colored sign disk with a red hat on display of station officers icon on display.
The objects in the second room on the lower floor are also very interesting. Materials used in the construction of railroads such as timber sleepers, flasks, wooden branch digging, a rail cut from the İzmir-Aydın railway which was laid in 1856, measuring instruments, locomotive whistle, the use of road guards in the flagship, the blowing machine (small size flame machine), in the workshops in Alsancak Station. British glass tiles offer a cross section of the history of railways.
One of the most important works in this area obtained by combining two rooms is a section of the Harem wagon of the Baghdad Railways. Walls, stained glass walls, silk tapestry covering, wooden roof of the colored hand-carved railcar section of the railroad's warehouses were identified as a result of coincidence and brought to the museum. The ventilation disc, fan, door handles and ashtrays belonging to the Vagona were exhibited in another glass compartment in the same room to protect against theft. Also in service areas, flares, plates and cutlery were also included in the glass areas.
In the past years, a piano used in the railroad loca- tion, however, now stands as a proof that social activities are more intense in the 1900s.
In the museum there is the signboard of the Izmir Railway Hospital, the laboratory equipment from the hospital, the workplace where overtime cards are printed, and the casting stoves.
TCDD Museum building annually 5 thousand 500 people are visiting. Beyhan, especially when the ships come to the harbor, foreign guests visit with interest. From Sunday to Monday, the museum is open between 09.00 and 17.30.
At the back of the building is a garden decorated with almond stones, and underneath it is a cellar of about 400, Mazlum Beyhan says. In addition to the museum building, it is noted that marble is always used on the outer surfaces of adjacent buildings, and that these materials probably come from the marble quarries in Ephesus.
I'm leaving the museum with my mind. I remember the concessions provided by the British when the İzmir-Aydın railway was founded, and I commemorate Behiç Erkin, who nationalizes the railways. I'm crossing the busy traffic, crossing the road, into the station.
I look at the area from the post office next to the museum building in the area described as Sait Altınordu Square to the British Consulate. Then I watch the gar complex behind me, the nursery building, the waiting hall used today as a residence and the clock tower above it, the nursery right next to it, the Tekel building and then the School of the Deaf. I imagine that this magnificent island, which is a few hundred meters away from the port, has been converted into a protected, protected area like the one in tourism paradise countries. I think that the tourist coming from the harbor will be able to make a touristic journey to Selçuk by train.
In the evening traffic in the street lined buses, cars, deaf ears in my ear sounds to myself.
