Trans-Siberian Trains Photo Gallery
You will usually be spending several days on board at least one and often 2 or 3 different trains operated by different countries during your Trans-Siberian trip. Life on board is a highlight for many and is quite likely to be the primary reason for taking the trip in the first place. We hope this slideshow gives you a taste of what to expect of this most magnificent of rail journeys!

A Photographic Celebration of the Trans-Siberian Trains
★ EVENING DEPARTURE IN WINTER
Nothing like an evening departure. Getting on the train pulling out a good book and settling in for the night
★ THE BUSTLE OF A WINTER PLATFORM
Despite Summer and early Autumn being the most popular time to travel, few can deny the beauty of Siberia in the Winter.
★ THE ROSSIYA – MOSCOW TO VLADIVOSTOK
The Rossiya is the best public train and follows the original Trans Siberian route from Moscow to Vladivostok.
★ BUSY SIBERIAN STATIONS
Although there is emptiness everywhere in Siberia, it is rarely empty at the stations where you get a chance to stretch your legs.
★ COSY CABINS AT DUSK
Whether it’s cold or hot outside, it’s always cosy in the cabins come evening time. Time for a nice cup of tea or something stronger!
★ BRIDGE OVER A NEAR FROZEN RIVER
Stark scenery greets you no matter where you are on the Trans Siberian but despite this there’s plenty to see from the window.
★ A BEND IN THE TRACK
It’s quite easy to believe you’re in a sparsely populated planet on certain sections of the route.
★ YOUR CONDUCTOR
Your conductor will look after you for your journey providing you are polite to them, just don’t always expect a smile!
★ WINTER PLATFORM MEETING
Winter makes for, perhaps, the most stunning of settings for the Trans Siberian. It’s easy to forget how warm it is in Summer!
★ MONGOLIA RUSSIA BORDER AT DAWN
Border crossings are generally slow so make sure you are ready and have already stocked up on necessaries before you reach them.
★ RUSSIAN 2 BERTH (COUPE) CABIN
Some of the trains only have 4 berth cabins whereas others also have 2 berth first-class cabins.
★ RUSSIAN DINING CAR
Dining cars differ from train to train depending on who is running them but they are always a good place for a drink, a hot meal and some socialising.
★ CROSSING THE MONGOLIAN STEPPE
The grasslands of the Mongolian Steppe are simply stunning. A definite case of less is more when it comes to the scenery.
★ BEIJING TO ULAANBAATAR TRAIN
The first leg on most East to West trips, leaving China behind and heading out onto the plains that greet you as you arrive in Mongolia.
