Until a few years ago, taking the 24-hour train ride for a 1,365-kilometer trip – instead of a plane journey of just over an hour – would have been considered madness, despite the cheap price of a measly 45 lira ($11)."Of course this trend has caught our attention on Instagram, some posts encouraged us to hit the road," said Nurcan Guner, who has taken the train with a good friend, wearing matching pajamas and socks, picked specially for the train ride.Nowadays, tickets for the train run out a day after they go on sale, even though the number of cars has more than doubled from five to 11 .What hasn't changed is the leisurely pace of the train through Turkey's remote eastern hinterland.Burcu Yilmaz, a 37-year-old medical technician, decided to take the trip after she saw the pictures shared on social media.
