There was only one railway line which ran through the area now covered by the exclusion zone. This was an east-west line running from Ovruch in the west to Chernihiv in the east. There was no north-south line for residents of Pripyat and Chernobyl. To reach Kiev required a road or river journey.
There are stations before Semykhody and after Vil'vcha, some of which are still operational. However, within the boundaries of the exclusion zone only Semykhody continues to be an active station, and even then only to ferry workers to and from Slavutych.
Most of the stations between Semykhody and Vil'cha are long overgrown and lost to nature. Only the most intrepid of travellers, usually of the illegal variety, will have much chance to getting a closer look at this section of the line.
