They can have a sleeper car configuration too, like with Spains Trainhotel.

That's will depend on the future political situation. It may remain disused and perhaps eventually be deconstructed.

Yes, it's better than basque. And that's why it's easier to build tracks without expensive structures - just using landscape. It adds a few kilometers, but it's not much, and it's cheap. And in basque mountains it would be nesessary to use tunnels and bridges anyway because, well, mountains.

Besides, tracks on the basque photo will be probably high speed? They need to be as straight as possible, while bypass is being built with standard speed limit of 160 km/h, if I'm not mistaken.

And there are may be some other reasons like moving railway for a certain distance from the border because you don't want to travel in the train listening to shells explosions because it's civil war nearby.

To build some extra kilometers on the surface is cheaper than to build several bridges and tunnels, that's why roads and railroads are curved and not straight as beams.

But this project (122.5 km) is even shorter than other candidates: Журавка — Шептуховка (149 km), Кантемировка — Шептуховка (146.1 km).

RZD to complete Sakhalin upgrade in 2018
Tuesday, May 31, 2016



MR Oleg Valinskiy, vice-president of Russian Railway (RZD), says that RZD will complete the modernisation of the 1067mm-gauge railway on Sakhalin island and its conversion to 1520mm gauge in 2018

Modernisation of the 833.8km railway began in 2003, and so far 591.5km has been upgraded. RZD will complete work on the Kholmsk - Noglik line in 2017 followed by the Arsentievka Korsakov line in 2018. The modernisation programme also includes work on 24 stations and 70 bridges

I wonder if some day they will link Sakhalin with continent... maybe even with Japan.

I think the tunnel from Hokkaido to Sakhalin, more realistic than on the mainland. Very expensive to bring the railway to the start point of the tunnel on the mainland.

Yeah, i think the nearest point to the tunnel is around 380km (by road) from Lazarev at Kenada.
