TCDD Sirkeci: 46 years old and still kicking, TCDD 8000 series EMU's gather at the commuter tracks at Sirkeci station. They loyally serve the 28km Sirkeci-Halkali line on the European side of Istanbul. Originally 4 unit EMU's, they now run in 3 unit sets similar to newer Turkish-built 14000 series EMU's. Despite welded rail, concrete ties and manicured track, their ride is quite rough. June 4, 2001.
