Azerbaijan and Turkey are considering joint production of railway cars, Chairman of Azerbaijan Railways CJSC Javid Gurbanov said, Trend reports Dec. 29.
The joint production is planned to be organized in Azerbaijan's Sumgayit city, he said.
"The width of the railway track in Azerbaijan is 1520 mm, which is provided for Russian cars, while the European standard is 1,435 mm. Our trains have large dimensions that do not allow them to pass through tunnels. Therefore, negotiations are underway with Turkish experts on hybrid trains, so that we can use them both in Azerbaijan and in Turkey, as well as in Europe," Gurbanov said.
