After escaping from the Russian consulate through Kerim's secret tunnel, Bond and his entourage come up very close to the Orient Express railway station in Istanbul, "İstanbul Garı".
As Bond, Tania and Kerim cross the street and run into the railway station, a fire truck is passing to give the impression that this place is located very close to the Russian consulate, where the fire is still going on. However, this location is on the other side of town from where the Russian consulate was located, namely in Sirkeci, a quarter located in the Eminönü neighborhood of the Fatih district.
The Venice Simplon Orient Express still departs from the Sirkeci station and makes the famous original journey to Paris once a year.
Kerim's secret tunnel leads up to a small shop where his men are waiting. For some reason, the small kiosk apparently sells oranges and lemons (or fresh orange/lemon juice). Through the side door, Bond, Tania and Kerim come out on Ankara Caddesi that runs immediately in front of the Sirkeci station, from where the Orient Express departs. I have covered the station in an earlier post, here.
