According to the contract signed between ADY and “Stadler Rail Group” at the meeting, four new passenger trains are planned to be delivered, tested, and put into operation in Azerbaijan by the end of this year, including the design of the Regional Service Centre, which will start operating.

Negotiations were also held on the training of local specialists and machinists who will service “Stadler” rolling stock.
