A new era has been opened in our country with the importance given to railways in the period of Cennetmekan 2. Abdulhamit. In the following years, especially during the War of Independence, our veterans carried weapons, supplies, soldiers and railroads behind the façade, and the railways played a big role in winning the War of Independence with the strategic importance and logistical support it carries. ”

Mes With the proclamation of the Republic, the importance given to our railways has increased. 1923 4559 kilometers in our country, while in 1940 8637 XNUMX km reached this length. Until now, the importance given to the railways has continued to increase day by day and our railways are renewed according to the conditions of the day and renewal continues. Today, railways are widely used as a fast and safe means of transportation in developed countries.
