Trouble to get the staff, the system is hard to match the legislation. In short, we started to struggle with the bureaucracy. We decided to do this by the private sector and we took a great distance in a short time such as 2,5 year. We designed a chassis system, mechanical and electronic systems were synchronized. Walk-in was done. Prototype vehicles were produced and tested abroad. When we saw the tram we were walking on the rails, we were happy as the father who saw his baby walk first. Ür
