9. Sometimes the Musical Chairs of Riders Coming and Goings: A Train Buff’s Russian Trans-Siberian Adventure

9. Sometimes the Musical Chairs of Riders Coming and Goings

On Friday June 23rd late morning, Vladimir got off and a new passenger in the afternoon came in, A Russian, named Victor didn’t speak any English – he was just traveling to Habrov, a large city in the far East. He and I were exchanging words from Google translate. A friendly man in his forty’s. I went and tried out some luncheon cuisine at the train diner. Many thin tall trees (birch), and grasslands, were  very green. Also could see a two lane highway, only with couple of cars going eastward towards Habrov. Not many drivers on the highway, very sparse. Victor got off the train before 8pm.

Two young men in their early 30’s boarded the train at 8pm to go short distance, about 8 hours to just to sleep and get off by 4am on Saturday morning. Sergey and Alex spoke very little English, and they were quite. I took a lot of sunset pictures. The clouds were cleared, and the sunset was very orange looking, taking the pictures while the train was moving between 80 to 100km/h speed. All through the route of about 5,700 miles, the train system of Trans-Siberian is electric power-driven. Every 100 to 200 feet, power poles.

 

 

Most of the pictures I took, have power poles, which support the electric power lines for the locomotive engine. I kept experimenting with new cuisine for lunch and dinner.
