The railroad from Grozny to neighboring Ingushetia (and thus the rest of Russia) has been rebuilt. But it can't be used. Not because of rebels blowing up portions of the line, but because local Chechens are stealing the rails. The steel brings $15 a ton on the scrap market, although it costs about five bucks to cut up the rails and drive them to the nearest scrap dealer. People living near the railroad have organized night watches to prevent the thefts, but have been unable to prevent thieves from stealing 56 kilometers of the 60 kilometer rail line.
