Far Eastern Railway (железная дорога) Blagoveshchensk to Khabarovsk

When many think of Siberia, cold comes to mind.  Bitter mind numbing cold for others, and yet this unforgiving place is not the least bit of the ‘end’ of the Russian frontier.  If you pass Siberia you go to the Far East and this is the last leg of the Trans-Siberian Railway. The most northern route stays in Russia while the other two head south through Mongolia or China.  Along these rails over the past 100 years many different waves of people from the first settlers and railway engineers, to prisoners or refugees and of course seamen who took care of the submarines in Vladivostok.  This leg was an overnight-er from Blagoveshchensk to Khabarovsk.
