There are two underground funiculars in Istanbul. One of them, called “T√ľnel” is second-oldest subterranean urban railway in the world!

There are also two heritage tram lines. This is the one in Taksim, introduced in 1990. Enjoyable but not quite useful, since service is slow and rare.

There is also a short cable system. There are two alternating lines. On each line there are two gondolas travelling in tandem. This is something I haven’t seen before!

We witnessed the quickest car towing ever. Highly effective!
