BAM Trans Siberian

BAM Trans Siberian Journey

Rated as one of the world's great train rides... which line runs through over 2,500 miles (4,320km) of Siberian wilderness, connects remote settlements where temperatures sink to -60°C (-76°F) in winter and was heralded as the Soviet Union's greatest ever construction project? The Trans Siberian? Nope, it’s the Baikal–Amur Mainline, better known as the BAM – the rogue sibling of the infinitely more famous railway to the south. The BAM is colder, remoter and traverses scenery that is every bit as spectacular, but its rails are travelled by barely any tourists.
