Despite its nostalgic appearance, it is environmentally friendly. It is supported by solar energy. It does not emit carbon with zero emissions. It complies with the green step criteria. It is far from glamor, flaunt and exaggeration. All rail system route junctions are separated by borders except traffic crossings. There are no problems that put security at risk. Besides, the Historical Dekovil Line has an important place in terms of district history. ”
“VERY SHORT TIME WILL RISE”
Finally, in the statement referring to the historical development of the train, “Gun and coal were transported to Anatolia during the War and Independence periods with this train, also known as the Kağıthane train in history. We will present this cultural heritage, which has been forgotten after 100 years, to young generations. The contribution of our district to the knowledge of its culture and history will be great. After all it is important for such a project implemented for the first time in Turkey. For this reason, this initiative should be supported instead of preventing it. The Kağıthane Train will be on the tracks again as soon as in history, but this time it will work for the transportation, culture and tourism of our Istanbul. ”
