Nostalgic express trains

Will those who were born before 1960 remember me? Nostalgic Express trains from HAYDARPAŞA to ANATOLIA were taking off. The locomotive and passenger wagons of these trains belonged to the restaurant (Lokan wagons) and Sleeper wagons behind the train belonging to TCDD and the private French company Vagon-Li (Wagons-Lits) from the Ottoman period.
  
This Wagon-Li (Wagons-Lits) business was to offer the very luxurious services of that era to the wagon passengers on the train. Such that the passengers were more stylish, luxurious, merciful and cultured than the current flight passengers. Each wagon had a special suit, and all the passengers in that car were responsible for it. Inside these sleepers, the 10-units compartment and the special washbasin, cloakroom, curtains and sofas in each compartment were made of velvet fabric. The restaurant (Restaurant Wagon) also had a chef, a cook assistant and two waitresses. The walls and curtains of these wagons were velvet fabric.
As you know, one of these expresses, the famous ORIENT Express, this train would come to ISTANBUL-Sirkeci Train Station and return to PARIS from there.
