The 335 km line will shorten the distance from Tashkent to Urgench/Nukus by 75 km and will also enable direct serices from Buckara to Urgench/Nukus. These will probaly be useful for travellers visiting Khiva and Bukhara in one trip.

According to Wikipedia, Uzbek railways :

>Track gauge 1,520 mm (4 ft 11 27⁄32 in)

This is infuriating. Why don't they switch to 1435mm already?

Why should they? All neighbouring countries use 1520mm.

Interesting. World you have a map of this ? When I was there last year we indeed went from Urguench to Bukhara and had to change trains at Navoi in the middle of the night, which was a pain in the neck.

And while I am here, anyone knows anything about the electrification of the line from Kharchi to Termez ? Masts where in place all the way along the line last year but I am not aware of any progress since then.

Why is the Qamchiq Tunnel electrified with 3 kV, when the rest of the rest of the Uzbekistan network is 25 kV ? Which locomotives operate the trains through the tunnel. Are these dual voltage locomotives ? Was the reason for 3 kV to have a smaller tunnel crosssection ?

Are you sure of that ? What are your sources ? I found documents that mention 3 kV and others that mention 25. But I was there in 2016 and do not remember any loss of power or lightning in the passenger cars due to a power supply commutation.

Акционерное общество “Ташкентский завод по строительству и ремонту пассажирских вагонов” вышло на мировой рынок и начало выпуск вагонов пассажирского подвижного состава под фирменным знаком “Мade in Uzbekistan”.

На сегодняшний день этот завод является единственным в Центральной Азии и с каждым годом совершенствует свои возможности. В частности, одним из важных проектов является освоение промышленных работ по ремонту вагонов метро и начато строительство их новой модификации. В 2016 году вагоны плацкартного и купейного типа 61-911 и 61-907 вызвали значительный интерес со стороны таких стран, как Россия и Казахстан. Согласно договору, начиная с нынешнего года для этих стран начали выпуск современной модификации вагонов и до конца 2017 года планируется отправить заказчикам пять вагонов плацкартного типа и столько же купейного. Здесь уместно отметить, что сертификат соответствия производства международным стандартам был получен в июне этого года.

Выпускаемые вагоны отличаются от своих предшественников рядом преимуществ. В частности, установлены современные системы очистки воды, кондиционирования воздуха, освещения. Интерьер выполнен в насыщенной цветовой гамме. Внешний дизайн оформлен в соответствии с требованиями заказчика.
Экспортоориентированные вагоны оснащены тележками 68-922 и 68-921 модификаций, которые позволяют скользить по рельсам ровно и с наименьшей качкой. Их производство освоено здесь же на заводе и производится начиная с 2011 года.

Интересная новость! Может кто знает - кто заказчик, частный перевозчик?

Loan agreed for Uzbek electrification project

http://www.railjournal.com/index.php...n-project.html

THE government of Uzbekistan has signed a $US 80m loan agreement with the Asian Development Bank to finance the electrification of the 145.1km Pap - Namangan - Andijan line in the east of the country.

The line serves the populous Fergana valley and Namangan, Uzbekistan’s second largest city, which has a population of nearly 500,000 people.

A direct rail connection between the region and the Uzbek capital Tashkent was established last year with the completion of the 123.1km Angren - Pap line, which was electrically operated from the outset.

At present the Pap - Namangan - Andijan line is used by just three freight trains and two passenger services a day. Electrification of the route will be accompanied by the introduction of more frequent services and enable a three-hour journey time between Namangan and Taskhent, while also reducing carbon emissions by an estimated 10,000 tonnes per year.

Uzbekistan Railways (UTY) estimates that completing electrification of its network in the Fergana valley could quadruple rail freight volumes in the region.

The total cost of the project is $US 177.5m, with the government and UTY contributing the remaining $97.5m.

Uzbekistan electrified around 1000 route-km between 2009 and 2016, and 65% of the network will be electrified by 2025.

UTY recently launched a tender for electric locomotives, which will be funded with the aid of an ADB loan.
