Romania developed high-speed trains but could not train rails: Romanian company Softronic developed its first high-speed train. The company manufactures its engines, shock absorber springs and wheel discs in Switzerland due to the lack of suitable production facilities in Romania, and made its first test drive from the city of Craiova, the capital of the factory, to Bucharest.
The maximum speed of the train, which costs the company 5 million euros, is 160 km / h. However, due to Romania's old rail system, the high-speed train is forced to travel in some places at 20 km per hour. The train did not exceed 97 km / h in Romania.
However, the company focused on exports in the short term, not the domestic market.
