Jochen Ickert confirms the continued existence of the large collection of steam locomotives at Usak - this page has been updated with extra locos noted and revised pictures on 12th September 2007. You can compare his list with that on http://www.trainsofturkey.com/w/pmwiki.php/Steam/PreservedSteam.
"I passed Usak depot by bus recently (June 21st, 2007), seeing several old rusting steam locos standing on the track outside the station. Getting off the bus I had a closer look, finding 11 steam locomotives mostly rotten outside. One of the local railway staff guided me into the depot, seeing some 5 or 10 more steam locos, some in a better state. I was told, there might be a steam museum in about 4 years!
Inside depot were some more steam locomotives, but it was hard to see number or to take picture because of light conditions."
It seems to be a busy station:
This is the shed sign:
56508 inside the shed
3315 is also preserved at Adana station
