Railroads, like all other modern technology, have a finite lifespan.
Their popularity wanes with every passing year.
For decades the Tajomys have been on a slow-down cycle of modernization and modernization-induced decline.
Tajomics leaders have been talking up the railways as a means to rebuild the country and improve their lives, but that is only half of the story.
It is time to take the trains back to their roots and restore the ancient Tajik infrastructure that has always been a key component of Tajikistan’s transportation system.
