Great work on updating the information on Istanbul's public transport; please keep it up! Vidimian (talk) 15:59, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

Change of marker from Go to Other on Istanbul#By train[edit]


Thanks for your edits on Istanbul#By train. However, I do not see the point of changing the markers from go to other for the Sirkeci and Haydarpaşa stations. Both stations will see service when trains resume, Haydarpaşa will be the terminus for YHT trains. Sirkeci will remain open for at least regional and some overnight trains. Also, we do not add links to other cities as markers. This is only confusing. --Jonte-- (talk) 13:05, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi! It's better to keep all discussions on one page, it is hard to follow otherwise. Also, it's useful to sign when you write (click the sign icon next to the bold and italic icons in the top left corner of the writing box). Firstly, I think it's great you're working on the Istanbul page, it has been long neglected. Personally, I would have written the section on trains otherwise, but it's fine. However, I think you should remove the geomarker icons and instead link to the cities themselves, Ankara, Konya etc. However, the good news is that trains will be running to Istanbul again! As confirmed by Rail Turkey , TCDD have started running night trains from Sofia and will add wagons from Belgrade and Bucharest this summer. They will travel to Halkali, near the airport and then a bus service will continue to Sirkeci. I could update with the new information during the weekend. --Jonte-- (talk) 10:24, 24 February 2017 (UTC)
Hi, thanks for the information, and tips. So it is possible to say Sirkeci will not be used as a train station, sad.Hocu (talk) 10:29, 24 February 2017 (UTC)
By the way, how do you use the 'City' marker? What is it for? Is there a detailed document for them? I have been looking for that info but couldn't find proper detailed information about markers. Hocu (talk) 10:31, 24 February 2017 (UTC)
