Gazi station is a historic station in Ankara, Turkey. Built in 1926 by the Turkish State Railways, the station building is notable for its Turkish Neoclassical architectural style, designed by Turkish architect Burhaneddin Tamcı.[1] Situated next to the Atatürk Forest Farm, the station was a stop on the Ankara suburban and Ankara-Polatlı Regional trains until 2016 when all train service (except high-speed) was suspended within Ankara. The station platforms are currently being rebuilt as part of TCDD's Başkentray project. The new station is expected to open on 12 April 2018.[2]
