II. Following the opening of the Anatolian Railway Line during the reign of Abdülhamid, it was planned to extend the line to Baghdad and Basra, and the construction of the Anatolian Baghdad Railway Line began with the contract signed on 23 December 1899.

Until 1918, a large number of tunnels were built in the region in order for the Anatolian-Baghdad Railway Line to cross the Taurus and Amanos Mountains and reach Baghdad.

Our tunnel 32, which is located between our Hacıkırı and Karaisalıbucağı stations, is still active today, with a 100-year history.
