Its a Talgo model, developed from the Talgo 250 used for Alvia services in Spain, as far as I can tell from the pictures. They are electric, and the Alvia version in Spain operates at 250km/h.

Wow, that's the first time I ever heard about HSR in Uzbekistan and it looks like the line is already operational!

How long is the line between Tashkent and Samarkand and what's the frequency of the trains?

Well, it's only 160, so it isn't a true HSR, not at the moment, at least.

Well, a fancy train alone don't make it high speed rail.

1 daily connection and a travel time of 2 hours for 340km aren't that spectacular. Apparently, there are a whopping 35km of HSL with the Uzbekistan railways lacking funds to construct more. I wonder how this can ever generate revenues.
