Luggage Storage on Trains

Postby kevin777r » Wed Aug 01, 2018 7:06 pm

Hey there! I am wondering what the situation is with storing luggage on trains in Uzbekistan. I am planning to be taking trains from Andijan to Tashkent and from tashkent to Samarkand later this month. I will be coming overland from Osh following a mountain climbing expedition, so I will have two large (130L) duffel bags of mountain climbing equipment and clothing.

Will it be possible to store these on the trains? Also, would you anticipate any trouble coming over the border from Osh with all of this stuff?


Thanks!

On some trains, people take their entire household, while on others, some weight limit (often 35 kg) or piece limit (3 pcs) is more or less strictly enforced. I have no idea how it is on these trains, but please tell us what happened :D

Will do! I’m a little less stressed/worries about it after seeing the two bags fit easily in the back of a sedan today, but they do combine to about 75 kilos

It will work itself out, but you can avoid problems by paying for an extra seat. The border will be fine.
