Here is the letter of General Director of TCDD Ali Ihsan Uygun;
After a heavy winter season, we opened the door for a new spring.
Heavens, which warmed the fertile soil of Anatolia fell. All around our country will be adorned with colorful flowers.
We will accompany the unique music of the snow waters flowing from steep slopes to waterfalls.
As always, we are waiting for you on our trains for your travels in order to be able to witness close to the beauties around our country.
No stopping on the tracks, going on,
Our railroads, which we celebrated this year 162 year, were not only a means of transportation in our country.
Undertaking a mission that goes beyond it, it has pioneered the development of our country in the economic, social and cultural area as well as the National Struggle.
In the historical process, especially after the 1950 's half a century for more than a period of time forgotten by abandoning our railroads, Mr. President's directives since 2003 was accepted as a state policy.
In the last 16 year, we have invested heavily in our railways. Once the nostalgia vehicle, the nostalgia spaces and the trains and stations, again won the interest and favor of our people.
However, this success must be stratified in order to reach our country's 2023 targets.
With the excitement of being able to carry our Railways under the auspices of our President under the auspices of our Minister, I am delighted to have started a service as a General Director of TCDD.
I have faith in the support of our altruistic railways and our people who are happy to serve during this duty which brings great responsibilities.
