The destination board of the Trans-Siberian Express.
It reads "Vostok: Москва to Pekin" on train number 19.
It is the world's longest train journey from the capital of Russia to the capital of the PR China, taking 7 days and 8961 kilometres.
I enjoyed travelling on this train and this name board reminds me of the trip, as we stopped at Novosibirsk in Siberia after a couple of days of travel.

Very interesting photo, with nice colours and good sharpness. Well done.
For me, this photo came at the right time because I am planning a train trip from Vietnam to Portugal and, of course, Russia has to be included. I did not know about this Moscow to Pekin connection. Can you give me some more info about it, like price and stops during the journey?
