Much of its length travels through heavy industrial areas from prehistoric times onwards- smoothly, steadily, rhythmically. Many of its riders partake in one of the numerous on-board activities offered, including face painting and horseback riding for children. One of its most famous riders was the son of a knife grinder who was disabled by sun stroke during part of the Gettysburg campaign and later, as a result of injuries sustained in a train crash, uncovered a magnificent series of polychrome ceramic tiles now housed in Konya’s Karatay Museum.
