One thought on “Doug’s Tips on How to Travel the Trans-Siberian Route on a Russian Railways Train

  • James R. Delmonte

    WE took the Transiberian train. Lots of fun and a chance to see locals and talk withthem. The trains are veryvery prompt.. I would stand on the Platform and exactly 5 seconds to go hop on the train knowing they are prompt.
    Meal times are based on Moscow time. Dinner is breakfast in Siberia etc.
    Mir offers good value to those who like the choo choo….

    When you arrive at a station the locals will have food and veggies to sell. Bargain. always offer less. 3/4th off many times was accepted. Fun trip. Bring post cards… and trade them. Bring photos of home…. people like to see America! JIm
