There is a station in Muğla Dalaman. To date, neither a train nor a single ticket has been bought at the box office. The summary of his story is simply “confusion”…

One day he went to Dalaman at Sarsala Bay, which is a mile away. The nature of the likes of the region began to visit more frequently.
Hilmi Pasha, who was an avid enthusiast, had first built a warehouse at Sarsala Bay. Then he built a road from the bay to Dalaman.
When the Egyptian governor came to Dalaman, most places were swamp. He dried them up and erected the eucalyptus trees that he brought from Egypt. Thus, Hilmi Pasha was the entire property of the region.

Hilmi Pasha decided to have a beautiful hunting lodge near the farm.
Things get mixed up
At that time, railway construction was one of the biggest projects of the Ottoman Empire. Railway lines were installed in many parts of the country.

These two construction plans were commissioned by French architects and workers. But things did not go as planned. There was a confusion and the materials for the Train Station were moved to Dalaman, and the hunting lodge was moved to Alexandria.
Workers started construction as soon as possible, the base of the garage had been laid until the mistake was noticed.
They even added a ticket booth in front of the building.
Rays without trays
The Dalaman Train Station, which was built by mistake, could not send passengers. Train tracks are not even close to the nearest railway station of the station 200 kilometers ları
Instead of demolishing the railway station, Abbas Hilmi Pasha built a mosque next to it.
In 1928, when a loan from Turkish Industrial Bank could not be paid, the train station and III. The farm that Selim had built was confiscated by the state.
