  1. The opening of new lines is nice, but it is also very important to have space available in the existing working lines? Now those who want to travel with YHT 1 can only find a place after the week YHT is going to go to the places where only 6 wagon if there is so much demand why 8 e or 10?
    I think the authorities at the beginning of TCDD are passive and incompetent.
