[Q] New train from Bukhara to Nukus?

Postby ifshefallinlove » Sun Aug 12, 2018 4:46 am

Greeting!

Until recently, I knew there were no direct trains from Bukhara to Nukus or Urgench. I knew using the train leaving Navoi was the only way to travel.
But recently, a train schedule from Uzbekistan's Railways found that a train from Bukhara to Nukus was operating early Wednesday.
The train leaving Bukhara at 01:48 a.m. has a route through the Miskin-Turgul-Elikala-Kazaozek to arrive at Nukus at 11:40 a.m.
There passing through some Turkmenistan for a while...(Please check the image file) So, I'd like to know if I need a tourist visa through Turkmenistan to use this train? anyone has tried this train No. 054 please share information.

I am sorry that my English is not perfect. Thank you for your interest!

Your picture just has straight lines between the stops, not where the actual train track is.

The Uzbeks opened the line Bukhara-Urgench a few months ago, so there is now quite a number of trains, not just 54. The route shown on your image is just the bee line between stations, the actual line does not pass through Turkmenistan, so you won't need any kind of Turkmen visa.
