Hi!
Trains do currently run, even thougj locals might not believe it...
HSH trains should currently operate as follows:

Kashar 0800 - 0845 Durrës 1600 - 1645 Kashar

Elbasan 0610 - 0857 Durrës 1445 - 1730 Elbasan

Kashar is a suburb ob Pristina ans you have to get there by taxi, bus or on foot.
Would bei curious to hear from your experiences.

Sorry, I meant Tirana instead of Pristina, obvisouly.

There are no trains to Shkodër or Vlorë at the moment and there are no (passenger) trains across the border to Montenegro.
