The Story of the Trans-Siberian Railway
The Trans-Siberian stretches nearly 6,000 miles between Moscow and Vladivostok on the Pacific Coast and was the most ambitious railway project in the nineteenth century. A journey on the railway evokes a romantic roam through the Russian steppes, but also reminds travellers of the vastness of our world and hints at the hardships that were endured in its construction.

Freight Services - Linking Eurasia

One of the Company’s main strategic goals is to achieve full integration into the Eurasian transport infrastructure in order to expand the East-West and North-South transport corridors across our huge continent to give operators the benefits of door-to-door delivery and greatly reduced costs and shipping times.

Russian Railways run national and international freight services for all types of commodity, ranging from coal, iron ore, cement and oil and oil products to automobiles and grain using specialised tank, box, flat, open-freight and grain cars.

We also operate containers and provide door-to-door delivery across Russia and Eurasia for your goods, giving you real-time information on the progress and location of your shipment using our electronic trading platform.

Russian Railways is committed to improving lines and rolling stock and expanding and upgrading East-West and North-South transport corridors across Eurasia. Operators benefit from greatly reduced costs and shipping times, while Russian Railways gain from rising freight volumes and increased revenues.

Russian Railways also expedite delivery times by:
  • shipping freight containers within Russia and internationally using high-speed container trains;
  • delivering containers directly to the consignee’s warehouses;
  • employing simplified procedures at customs to ensure seamless transport across borders;
  • legalizing documents on transit freight transported in containers;
  • providing safe-passage for freight, with armed guards provided by the Russian Ministry of the Interior on all freight trains across Russia.

First transit container train departs from China to Nakhodka-East station via Suifenhe-Grodekovo border crossing


RU EN
A demonstration container train consisting of forty wagons of transit cargo has left for the first time the People's Republic of China for the southern ports of China and the Republic of Korea via the Vladivostok region of the Far Eastern Main Line.

A special timetable schedule was developed specifically for this trip, with the train departing from the Grodekovo border station at 07:20 and arriving at the Nakhodka-Vostochnaya station at 18:00 Moscow time later the same day. Total travel time is 10 hours and 40 minutes.

Both China and Russia now need rail transport between Suifenhe-Grodekovo – Nakhodka-Vostochnaya (Vostochny Port) nowadays. Among Chinese shippers are large companies such as HuaShen, which dispatches between 300-600 containers every month loaded with paper, chemical products and agricultural products to China's southern ports.

This corridor is an alternative to the traditional route via the Chinese port of Dalian, which is now significantly overloaded. Rail transportation allows the shipment of goods in commercial quantities in the shortest possible time.

The project to develop an international rail connection between Suifenhe in China and Grodekovo in Russia was implemented in the framework of the decisions adopted by the Working Group of the Greater Tumangan Initiative (GTI) in October 2013.

One of the key areas of GTI cooperation is to organise transit shipments of Chinese exports via Russia's seaports in its Far East region. The regular dispatch of transit containers on this route will optimise the transport and logistics supply chain of goods from China's northern provinces and in the opposite direction by using the infrastructure of stevedoring companies of the Far East and Russian Railways.

Jonathan Glancey: Giants of Steam. The Great Men & Machines of Rail’s Golden Age.
(Courtesy: Atlantic Books)
The cover of this enthralling book tells it all.. but only  the half of it!
True, the splendid appearance of the express steam locomotive at its best is magnificent to behold.. but behind the scenes are the engineers who dared to improve, refine and develop further Stephenson’s legacy to the world into the far distant future.
 
The “Mallard 75” and “The Great Gathering” (of the six surviving A4s) celebrations have come to a close at the National Railway Museum, York. Thousands have visited …. And enjoyed the experience. But exhibits in a museum, being static and lifeless, convey the very idea of something being very definitely of the past. Discerning eyes, though, see something else. They see the development of steam traction over the nearly 200 years of commercial service and use.. and the prospect of this continuing far into the future. Which is where this book “Giants of Steam” comes into its own..
We are introduced through this book’s pages to a veritable “Who’s Who” of engineers who made contributions to improving the steam locomotive’s capacity for power, speed  and its thermal efficiency. (Don’t worry about the technical expressions in the book…-and there are many-..there is a helpful glossary at the end of the volume)
Following on in the footsteps of Stephenson come…..George Churchward, Andre Chapelon, Kyosti Kylala, Louis Armand, Otto Jabelmann, William Woodward, Paul W Keifer, Vlastimil Mares, Lev Sergeyevich Lebedyansky, Kenneth Cantlie, Alan Griffiths Watson, Egide Walschaerts, Alfred Belpaire, Nigel Gresley, Oliver Bulleid, William Stanier, Dr Piero  Crosti, Ing. Attillio Franco, Dr Giesl, Livio Dante Porta, David Wardale…………and others….
Each of the above made significant contributions to the development of the steam engine..some quite radical designs… Gresley’s “Hush Hush”, Stanier’s “Turbomotive”, Bulleids “Leader” and turf burner for CIE, and Wardale’s 5AT…and Jonathan Glancey   argues persuasively that steam traction could still be developed further to maximise its full potential. The aggressive marketing techniques of diesel manufacturers and  a love affair with being “modern” have marginalized the very notion of steam traction. But in countries where indigenous fuel is available (and not expensive imported oil using up valuable home currency) and could be used to fire locomotives, then steam very definitely has its place.
Andre Chapelon has been described as a “passeiste” or “man of the past”. But thanks to such men of the past , steam traction may yet have a very useful future.

    Rail network: afternoon update, December 27
     
    Rail services are beginning to recover from last night’s storms but there remain some major challenges to overcome on the network.

    Hundreds of Network Rail engineers have been working to remove trees from lines, repair landslips and monitor flooding.

    Several routes, including Kent, had delayed starts this morning so their lines could be examined in daylight before trains could run.

    Robin Gisby, managing director of network operations, said: “This has been one of the most challenging periods we have faced in recent times and our engineers have been doing all they can to get things moving again.

    “There is an improving picture nationwide but passengers still need to check with their operators before setting off. We thank them for their patience in what have been very difficult circumstances."
    A spokesman for the Rail Delivery Group, which speaks on behalf of the rail industry, said: "We’d like to apologise to passengers whose journeys over the festive period have been affected by the bad weather of the last few days. Strong winds have damaged overhead wires and brought down trees onto lines.

    "Hundreds of rail staff have been working round the clock to clear tracks but some services have started later than planned to ensure passengers can complete their journeys safely. As the bad weather passes, many services are getting back to normal but delays are still likely on some routes so passengers should check with their operator or National Rail Enquires before they set off.”

    The most serious impacts on the network are a temporary closure until 2pm of the northern end of the West Coast Main Line, north of Oxenholme, to repair damage to the overhead power supply. In addition, the line from London to Portsmouth via Haslemere is blocked by four landslips near Liphook. We are assessing the severity of those slips and we do not expect this line to reopen this weekend. In addition, there is another serious landslip blocking the railway at Ockley between Horsham and Dorking, and again we are assessing the damage.

    There are temporary speed restrictions in place on the East Coast Main Line north of Doncaster until later today, which will result in some lengthened journey times.
