Me, I wonder why even equipping the railcars with couplers strikes this land's autocrat as being worthwhile

The current trains only have 9 coaches, but the new order includes to extend the current trains with two coaches so that the whole fleet has 11. Its length will go from 158 to 183 meters.

The current trains (nobody from Talgo has said otherwise, so I imagine the new ones they are equal) have 5,056 kW (with IngeTeam chain of traction, more than the S-130/730 of Bombardier) so there are no power problems.

More information about the transfer.

The article says that the trains will go to Karshi which is where electrification ends today. I have seen when I was there that electrification masts have been erected all the way to Termez but have seen no signs of any further work. Is electrification to Termez still planned ? The line profile amply justifies it...

Within the 325 km Karshi-Termez path, the 90 km Karshi-Dekhkanabad section has been electrified since January.

Talgo Afrosiyob trains currently run between Tashkent Samarkand and Karshi (Qarshi), and will soon arrive to Bukhara (Buxoro) westward.

Any update about Bukhara link? The railways site is often down (timetable page) and it's hard to get updated info on the schedule.

That's a nice train. How does the infrastructure cope with the large temperature swings? I think it gets quite hot in the arid climate, and very cold in the winter?
