Merry Christmas! We wish you many surprises and long journeys in the future! ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ›

In 2015 we have already transported 89% more containers from China via the Trans-Siberian Railway!

Dear friends! We would like to congratulate the teams of breakdown recovery trains, as it is their professional holiday today! Their duties were first specified in 1936, when a special order was issued to upgrade their status, enabling them to arrive at the accident scene as promptly as possible even when the volume of rail traffic was high. Nowadays the importance of breakdown recovery trains is as critical as ever, and their teams are always ready to help at a momentโ€™s notice.

An incredible picture of the RA2 railbus running among the trees covered with hoar frost in autumn in our trainspotting column. It is a breath-taking view!

Today is a special occasion: exactly 31 years ago, the Baikal โ€“ Amur Mainline was officially put into operation. Over 4,000 km long, nowadays it is one of the largest mainlines in the world. Construction workers built more than 1,000 bridges and dug their way through seven mountain ridges in order to link the remote parts of eastern Russia with its center. We would like to thank them for their hard work and enormous contribution to the project!

#autumn is seeing all traffic light colors during one #trip by #road.

Today our traditional #trainspotting column features a marshalling yard in Nizhny Novgorod. The CHS4t electric locomotive is in the foreground.

The smallest commuter train in Russia looks like this. It is driven by a ChME3 diesel locomotive.

Traditional Friday #trainspotting: a small train in Buryatia moves along the shore of Gusinoe lake, close to Lake #Baikal.

Nowadays, L series steam locomotives drive retro trains along popular tourist routes, including the Trans-Siberian railway.
