The Burdur-System: In the highlands in the north to the Turkish Mediterranean region between Lake Burdur in the west and the Egridir Lake in the east is developed by a number of branch lines. Starting point of this system is Karakuyu, a small station near Dinar. The baseline Karakuyu - Egridir is 80 kilometers long, branches are starting at Gümüzgün (to Burdur) and Bozanönü (to Isparta). The section Bozanönü - Egridir with it's remarkable large steel bridge at Egridir is out of service for several years now, but the remaining lines are scenic too.

Some impressions of Burdur-System convey the following photos, taken in winter 2010. Working steam locomotive was 56.548 (ex. DRB 52.7429) from the depot Usak.
