Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan.21
By Emil Ismayilov - Trend:
Azerbaijani Railways JSC has received all 76 passenger wagons sent for overhaul to Ukraine and Russia, head of the company Arif Askerov said in an interview on the website of the ruling party Yeni Azerbaijan.
The head of the company said that 60 wagons have been overhauled at Dnepropetrovsk and 16 in Voronezh.
Askerov went on to say that the wagons will be operated on the Baku-Tbilisi and Baku-Moscow routes.
The wagons were sent abroad for repairs due to the lack of technology in Azerbaijan for capital repairs of passenger carriages.
As the deputy head of the company Gurban Nazirov said earlier, Azerbaijani Railways as part of the renovation of the car load park plans to buy 100 new passenger wagons. It is also planned to buy 50 locomotives for freight transport and 12 locomotives for passenger transport.
