This is not the transsiberian. It's trans-mongolian, more precisely the
station of Naushki, the last russian station before the mongolian border.
I have been there...

This is the "old" trans-siberian line, between Port-Baīkal, at the mouth of
the Angara river on Baīkal lake, and Sloudianka. Have been there too, on
the same train (electrichka hauled by a diesel).

This is Trans-mongolian again, more precisely the chinese border station of
Erlian, where wide-gauge bogies are exchanged for normal gauge. You can
see at the left a 4-rails track with the two gauges interleaved. Trains from
Mongolia arrive on this track, passengers can disembark, then the train is
taken back by a chinese shunting loc to the shed where bogies are exchanged
(you can stay on the train to watch, of course I did) ; after that the train
comes on this track again, but on the other pair of tracks. Finally the road
loco is attached while passports are checked, and finally the train moves on.

You can find a few pictures taken by me during this trip,
and notably one taken in this station, on

This is, again, the old trans-siberian line on the shore of Baīkal lake. This
section is now only used for local and tourist trains. One of the tracks has
been lifted and its bed is now used as a hiking trail ; the catenary poles are
still in place but only carry phone and electricity wires today. If you ever
happen to be in the area, the excursion train is really worth it.

This is in Belgium, not on the usual journey that this train makes. But
when there is an obstruction on the french network, preventing the train to
reach Calais, the train is diverted via Bruges, and passengers ferried by
luxury bus between Calais and Bruges. Then the train goes for stabling at
Ostende, without passengers because the platforms there are not long
enough. It's during this empty move that the photo has been taken.
