Passenger train traffic on this line was opened today. Several trains to Nukus/Urgench now use this line, thus saving 2 hrs. Also Bukhara now gets direct trains to Urgench!

The Dushanbe - Astana train doesn't use the relatively new line Kumkurgan - Tashguzar (- Karshi) inside Uzbekistan, but uses the traditional route around the mountains via Kelif/Turkmenistan. So it's probaly of not much use for international tourists, who need a visa for Turkmenstan.
