The TOT list identifies

TCDD 56512 Borsig 15462 1943 2-10-0 ex DRG 52 365

as being at Usak. However I could find no trace of it either in 2008 or 2009. However, I think I may have found it at Alasehir. There are 13 locomotives here but the LCGB list only identified 12 - I suspect 56512 is the 13th.

YESILKAVAK

This is a rural location that is not easy to find. If you return to the main road after visiting Alasehir and head north after about 25 km there is a small roadside sign that says YESIL - go down here for about 2km and you come to the station. There are 5 locomotives dumpeD here. The people are really friendly and although they must have thought I was mad treated me well.
