Photographer's Note

Russian train #19 halfway through its 7-day long trans-siberian journey from Moscow to Beijing.

The photo is taken in Russian territory at Novosibirsk station (in Siberia).

This lone North Korean sleeper carriage was attached to the train consist for part of the journey. It was filled with North Korean communist officials (complete with Kim Il Sung badges on their clothes) who were bound for Pyong'yang after a completing a diplomatic mission to Moscow.

All Russian train carriages carry destination boards - in this case, my photo depicts the rarely seen Russian-DPRK (North Korean) destination sign.
