Due to these problems, the Machinist personnel could not open the 5545 models in the first movement by train and suffered financial losses.
Union, TCDD Transportation Co. As a result of the meetings with the General Manager, Heads of Passenger, Vehicle Maintenance and Capacity Department;
Halkapınar Depot and locomotives entering and exiting from the depot are given train line at depot exits; 8, which is the beginning of the new ORER period, was announced to our union by the authorities of the Authority on the date of December 2019.
