Çamlık Locomotive Museum

The train from Selçuk is an event in itself, climbing up the hills behind Ephesus.

Turkey lacks a useful rail network: there are no lines to the Aegean beyond Söke or to the entire Mediterranean coast. The Çamlik open-air museum, run by the Turkish state railway, is therefore rather unexpected. Here are more than 30 black giants of the industrial age, which can be clambered over and fully inspected. Utilising the former Çamlık station, the museum includes an engine shed, turntable and much railway paraphernalia. The carriage in which Atatürk travelled around the country, along with many photographs of his journeys, are a reminder that he was not just the founder of the state railway, but a train enthusiast, too.
