The historical railway is being reintroduced: The Municipality of Kağıthane has started work on the reconstruction of the historic railway line at 1915.
In a written statement made by the Municipality of Kağıthane, the historical railway line was put into practice, and the district was started to make the city a place where modern time and historical textures were blended.
The municipality of Kağıthane, which started its work on the basis of historical documents and relics, determined the route of Kağıthane Railway, which was established under the name of ağa Haliç-Karadeniz Sahra Line rik during the First World War in order to transport coal to Silahtarağa Electric Factory. Afterwards, the Municipality, which accelerated its activities with the support of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, applied to the Monuments Board for the registration of the line.
As a result of the inspections carried out by the municipality, it was learned that the line could be rebuilt in accordance with its original structure and that the historical railway line to be constructed could be used for cultural tourism outside the city, while the remaining part of the city center could be used for public transportation.
- The nearest 4 station was the Kâğıthane station.
According to historical sources, the Golden Horn-Black Sea field line, which was established as a connection line between the Silahtarağa Power Plant operating in Istanbul and the lignite quarries in the north of the city, was transporting the coal from Zonguldak to the Silahtarağa Power Plant brought to Istanbul by sea. The second leg of the line was put into service when the trouble of supplying coal in the First World War started.
Starting from Silahtarağa Power Plant and heading north through the west coast of Kâğıthane Creek and passing through Göktürk, the line was divided into two branches in Kemerburgaz. One arm was still under the Uzunkemer following the Kagithane Creek and was meeting with the Black Sea in Agacli village. Even the nearest 4 was the Kâğıthane Station from the main station to the city
The rails of the closed line were buried in the ground. Non-soil parts were removed. While the sections of the passage route outside the city still exist today, many of the milestones have survived to the present day.
- The Golden Horn and the Anatolian Side will be connected
With the project, the Golden Horn and the Anatolian side that connect to the Mayor of Kağıthane Fazlı Kılıç said, ağ This railway is a very important milestone in the history of Kağıthane. If we ignore the traces of this path completely and do not rebuild it, we will do a great evil against history. I was dreaming of this railway before I became the mayor. As soon as we took office, we took the whole archive and thought about what should be done. We have received information from historians and technicians. I met with TCDD management and had a mapping work on the old line. After finalizing the mapping work carried out jointly by Kağıthane Municipality and State Railways teams, we invited Kadir Topbaş, Mayor of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, to inform him about the railway and its route. We saw that Mayor Topbaş was knowledgeable and relevant. We have also given a detailed briefing about the map and routes. At a time of this briefing, Mr. Kadir asked the General Director of TCDD and asked for technical support. Kadir Topbas, immediately after this trip to Istanbul Metropolitan Planning Bureau, the line to be processed in the map and plans, instructed the construction of the railway for the reconstruction. As a result of this instruction, the working group established at the Metropolitan Plan Office visited the area, made a helicopter flight on the line and prepared a preliminary work. The project draft was completed in April 2009. This way will bring together two seas, Bu he said.
- With the gospel of our prime minister, a century-old dream will come true
President Kılıç stated that they are continuing their work in this area and said, “We have reached a certain stage in consultation with Eyüp, which is the other district where the line passes. In his speech at the opening ceremony of the Black Sea water channel, which was moved to Kağıthane last year, our Prime Minister gave the good news that the Silahtar - Ağaçlı railway line will be rebuilt. So our century-old dream began to turn into reality. This train line connects with the Third Bosphorus Bridge in the north near the village of Çiftalan. You know there's a train line on this road. We will also set up a transfer station at the juncture of our train line. So those who want to go to the Asian side will be able to get off the train and get on the other side. Thus, the Golden Horn will be tied to the Anatolian Side. Böylece
The historical railway has become one of the new brands of Istanbul with the exposing of the date again, Kaganane'nın continued to blend the past with the modern world recorded.
