Can railway system work in a country without a constant energy power supply?

Yes. The engines would have to run off fossil fuels if

electricity is intermittent (This is still the standard, anyways)

and a communications system based around local power sources would

have to be used. It would be the job of the railway company to keep

its stations powered (i.e. fueled). If the railway company can

control power to its infastructure, it can run successfully.
