MISC | Longest Railway journey in the shortest time

There seems to be a consensus this thread (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=435941)
here that the longest you could go by rail is from Vila Real Santo Antonio to Saigon.

I wonder how long the quickest time to get from VRSA to Saigon would be by train?. This is the best one I have found, although it has serious flaws (most notably the 1 ½ day wait in Novosibirsk). I wonder if anyone can find a faster time between these two points.

I've just realised that I forgot to factor in the time zone differences. So the first journey takes 365 Hours and 44 minutes.

It seems to be a little quicker on the journey back
