The regional train connecting Izmir with Ödemiş

Central Aegean is home to the densest (as well as the oldest—the earliest constructions date back to 1857) rail network in the country. In addition to the frequent (relatively speaking) regional trains that run on main trunk lines between Izmir and Manisa, and Izmir and Aydın, many railbus (raybüs) services connect agricultural towns lying at the end of branch lines with larger settlements, especially Izmir.
