The city at porsuk river has about 460.000 inhabitants and is also capital of the province of Eskesehir. The city has a lot of industy, but also some museums and is hometown of the 1958 founded anatolian University.

The new tram cam from its constructor's works to Edingen by road. The car belongs to the "Flexity Outlook" tram family, also known as "Cityrunner" like in service at Linz (Austria) and Lódz (Poland).
