Angren-Pap trains

Post by b.b. »

I've read that the Angren-Pap railway line between Fergana and Tashkent is complete (e.g. http://www.rferl.org/content/qishloq-ov ... 74309.html). Are passenger trains running along this line yet?

Thanks :)

I got an answer from Tashkent:

No, there is no such train. It was just a presentation of Angren-Pap train through Kamchik Pass during Shanghai Summit. Will wait for real train for a long time.

Uzbek Railways recently opened a new passenger train station building in Andijan - probably they wouldn't have built a new station, if they didn plan to introduce passenger trains to the Fergana valley sooner or later...
Seee http://railway.uz/ru/informatsionnaya_s ... osti/3917/

We still have to wait, but probably it's just a matter of time. Freight trains already use n´the new line regularily: http://railway.uz/ru/informatsionnaya_s ... osti/3924/

That would be great. I informed about this last week in Tashkent, and they said: we will be waiting a long time. Not sure who is right here. Perhaps in Uzbekistan a week is a long time?

Will keep following up on it, would be great if they can finish before the start of the high season.
