Stating that with the TRT Railcar Project, which was put into practice in collaboration with TRT and TCDD, the feelings experienced by those who knew that period will now be experienced by children and young people who visit the museum, Elvan added “In a sense, this wagon meets our past and present and sets up a spiritual connection between the two periods.”
TCDD General Director Karaman, in his turn, said that TCDD is on the one hand trying to set the railways on solid ground in all fields and at the same time actualizing social and cultural projects on the other. TRT General Director İbrahim Şahin said that the most meaningful of the 50th anniversary activities that have been organized is the TRT Railcar.
