Train expert and author Christian Wolmar will be lecturing on our two new Trans-Siberian rail journeys by private train – the BAM Route and the Siberia Discovery Route.

Christian Wolmar has been called a “fervent railway enthusiast.” But beyond his enthusiasm, he has become one of the UK’s foremost commentators on transport, as well as the award-winning author of some 14 books, including To the Edge of the World: The Story of the Trans-Siberian Express, the World’s Greatest Railway.

He’ll be joining travelers on the 2016 departures of both the BAM Route and the Siberia Discovery Route to enhance the journey with his expertise, commentary and conversation.

Each traveler on these two rail journeys will receive a signed copy of Wolmar’s book To the Edge of the World.
