Circum Baikal

The Circum Baikal Railway travels along the old railroad bed along the north western portion of Lake Baikal. The route was abandoned when the Angara River was dammed in the early 1950’s.  Special trains run on weekends along the original tracks that were laid in 1902.

Trans Siberian Railway

In May 2017 Louise and I traveled from Vladivostok to Moscow by rail. Here are a few images.


North of Vladivostok and east of Ulan Ude is Khabarovsk.  On the first morning north of Vladivostok the train turns west at the Amur River at Khabarovsk and continues west.
