Along the Deadline (Alasehir, Turkey)

26 May

Along a street named Akkeçeli Cd. in Alasehir, Turkey on Turkish State Railway (TCDD) property is a deadline consisting of a group of five derelict locomotives and a group of three locomotives separated from the first group by perhaps 150 feet.

If you wish to explore this deadline with Google Street View then the following link will take you there:,28.5163294,3a,75y,264.35h,82.68t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1stG8gePnQhYsFGlHoEu1XGA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

The only locomotive in this group I was able to identify by the number on the cab was TCDD 2-10-2 No. 57021. For your amusement the first group of five consists of the following wheel arrangements: a 2-8-2, a 2-10-0 without a tender, another 2-10-0 with a tender, another 2-10-0 without a tender and a 2-10-2. The second group of three locomotives consists of a 2-10-0, TCDD 2-10-2 No. 57021, and lastly a 2-10-0. If anyone has a means of identifying which locomotives these are amongst those listed in Alasehir, please let me know by emailing me at
