Left luggage in Tashkent Station & Tashkent safety at nightI'll be arriving at Tashkent station at 14:50 and my outbound flight from Tashkent Airport will be 22:50 in early November.
I want to make sure to be at airport 3 hours before the flight, but still I'll have 5 hours to spend.
I've found some posts on the web that there's left luggage at Tashkent station..but is it easy to find and reliable?
Do police allow me to get into the station when I come back to the to get the bag?(I'll be without train tickets because I'll be just going to the airport)
I have one more concern, about safety.
I'm thinking of visiting Applied Art museum, Navoi theatre, and supermarket to buy something and planning to go to airport at around 19:00-19:30.
It seems sunset at Tashkent is 17:00....
Is it safe to walk around Tashkent at night? Is there anyway to call licensed taxi to airport at that time? I heard most of taxis in Uzbekistan are not licensed...
Sorry for too many questions..

1If I understand your questions correctly;
1. Tashkent is safe at night
2. every car is a taxi, just put out your hand and they will stop for you BUT DO NOT GET IN UNTIL YOU HAVE AGREED TO THE PRICE or you will pay what the taxi driver tells you to pay at your destination, just stand at the window and haggle your ass off, and remember there is always another car coming down the street so do not be afraid to say no. Have small bills, if you flash a large demonition bill I GUARANTEE the driver will tell you sorry no change, then what are you going to do?
3. if you have a receipt for left baggage you should not have any trouble getting back in to reclaim it
4. 3 hours seems excessive to register for your flight, it is not like Heathrow
5. You can call a taxi, but why?

4I walked around the Navoi Theater vicinity when I was in Tashkent and it was at night as well. It's safe.
There's a fountain in front of a theater with colorful lights and all, and is actually nicer to see at night.
