Thoroughly enjoyed spending an hour in this place with lots of different engines on display. Problem is they are not maintained, just slap on a bit more green paint to cover the rust and don't pick out the lettering on the description plates. Would have...More

Take the metro and enjoy these massive beasts of a bygone era. Climb aboard those that you can and imagine what it was like to ride the rails all those years ago. Would have enjoyed more access to to the engines but a most enjoyable...More

The Tashkent Railway Museum is a tribute to the former Soviet might in steel production and getting things done by sheer determination and a bit of brute strength. The displays of the decommissioned trains is wonderful to spend a bit of time exploring and reading...More

The collection is very varied from old steam engines through to more modern trains. Some you can clamber over or go inside. It is all outside so best to go on a fine day - we got soaked!

Has a most unique collection of soviet era trains. Locos made in Russia, Germany and the USA had us drooling. You can climb into most of the locos and carriages. Super affordable. They also havea toy train ride for the youngsters.
