The locomotive, which did not apply the handbrake, traveled 40 kilometers in Adana.
In Adana, due to the machinists who came down from the locomotive to meet the need without applying the handbrake, the disaster was returned. The train went down about 40 kilometers downhill when two mechanics using a locomotive with a single car going from Ulukışla to Adana direction went to the sink to meet the need in Çiftehan, without pulling the hand brake. The locomotive, which was left unattended, was prevented by removing the scissors in the Belemedik region at the last moment rather than colliding with the Çukurova Express from Adana.
2 day before the event started in the Çiftehan region to go to the sink to fix the need for mechanics. The locomotive, which the machinists forgot to apply the handbrake, made their way downhill. When they came from the sink, the train could not find the machine, immediately reported the situation to the supervisor by phone. In order to prevent the collision of the locomotive, which went on its own 40 kilometer, against Cukurova Express from the opposite direction, in the Belemedik region the scissors were changed. Without the machine, the locomotive was removed from the rails and directed to the space. Officials learned that if there is a delay of 5, the collision of two trains cannot be prevented.
