Train from Iranian Astara to Rest of Rail Network

Post by Spailpin.Fanach »

Hi

I see from the Iranian rail network map, http://www.iranrail.net/network.php that there's a connection from Astara and Rasht to the rest of the Iranian rail network. However, when I search stations and routes, I cannot find any mention of these stations.

Anyone know why this should be. Are the stations spelt differently. I remember a similar situation when I couldn't find stations in Russia because I was using an older, or newer, version of the name.

I want to travel on to Tehran.

Thanks

This line is still under construction, the map you linked is wrong. You'll have to use other modes of transportation, most probably a bus.

Here's some info: https://www.azernews.az/region/125836.html
And perhaps the most important sentence for you: "However, the plans for running passenger trains will be postponed, he added."

Many thanks.

Bus is fine although train is better, in my opinion.

Is the station at Rasht open and does it connect with the rest of the Iranian rail network?

If not, what is the nearest open or working station to Astara
