Buca Railway Station is known as the last station of the first branch line of the Izmir-Aydın Railway Line, which was completed in 1866 with the concession received from the Ottoman Empire by British merchants.
The construction of the railway, which has a length of approximately 3 km between Sirinyer Railway Station and Buca, was completed in 1872. Buca Railway Station Lodging, which is located in the last station of Şirinyer-Buca railway line, closed to transportation after IZBAN line opened to service with the cooperation of İzmir Metropolitan Municipality and Republic of Turkey State Railways (TCDD), is now dysfunctional and closed for use.
Located on Buca Uğur Mumcu Street, directly opposite the PTT’s Faculty of Education Branch and at the entrance of Buca Train Station, the lodging reflects the architectural style of the period.
Since it has the same features as the station buildings in Alsancak Railway Station, the roof section of the station lodging building, which is thought to be built by British architects who worked in the construction of many buildings in Izmir at the end of the 1800s, draws attention with its different features. The different style of the roof covered with tile attracts the attention of those who see the building.
The exterior of the Buca Train Station Lodging building, which was built in harmony with the civil architecture of Buca, was built of face stone. With its facade extending to the border of Uğur Mumcu Street, the building, which can be easily seen by those passing through the street, is unfortunately inert despite all its different features and historical history.
