Great train rides of the world

I've travelled on this train a number of times and it always amazes me that it can cross 9,km and arrive on time the entire way across!

There are a number of loco changes along the way but the entire Trans Siberian is now electrified so it's electric all the way, and most of the locos are super modern - no more Soviet museum pieces that still run in Georgia, Kazakhstan and other places! My home away from home on the Rossiya - the world's longest passenger train!! The Rossiya crosses two continents and six time zones, departing Moscow in the evening and arriving Vladivostok on day 7 - six nights after leaving Moscow.

Luckily the train has a surprisingly nice restaurant car, and the new cabins have beds that fold into seats so the days of having to be in bed for 6 days are gone! What a trip! I haven't been brave enough to do it all in one go non stop yet - bu … t one day!!

Has anyone out there done it in one go?

I know this is somewhat controversial - there are carriages that run to Pyongyang in North Korea that are shunted across the border and attached to another train that travel further - but I'm not sure that counts.

The train cars are winched up, the old bogies wheeled out and new ones wheeled in! The whole process seems inefficient and slow - especially given I recently travelled on a Spanish Talgo train that went through an automatic gauge changer in less than 5 minutes!

Luckily for me this is just a train movement - the train is so long it has to make multiple stops on every platform! Looking forward to heading out into the night through Melbourne and Albury north. Next stop Canberra! I got asked the other day which Trans Siberian trip is best - I've done both the Trans Mongolian and Trans Siberian proper to Vladivostok and that's a very hard question to answer!

I probably lean towards Vladivostok, but its a close call! Does anyone out there have an opinion? Here is my cabin on the Trans Mongolian - onboard a Mongolian train that links Ulaanbataar with Beijing once a week or so which is looking very much like a Chinese Soft Sleeper car.

All of the routes … have comfortable compartments now, but I think the Russian trains probably have my vote for the best Trans-Sib trains. Last time I travelled it in had older wood panelled carriages - have these been updated since then?
