Tajikistan has a limited rail transport service. The railroad system totals 680 kilometres of non-electrified single-track railway service.
Major parts of the Tajikistan railroad services connect the main urban centres of western Tajikistan with points in the neighbouring country Uzbekistan.

Commuting through trains in Tajikistan is not that popular due to the irregular mountainous terrain of the country. The underfunding of the national train company is also one major reason that contributes to the scenic, but slow rail transport modes.
Improvement in political and economic relations with the neighbouring country Uzbekistan has opened up promenades for international travel in the near future of Tajikistan. As for now, trains from Tajikistan to the side countries Uzbekistan and Russia are a tough and complicated enterprise.
