Photographer's Note

If you compare the rails in Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Finland and in other countries, you will see that they are different! Russian rails lay wider, that's why our coaches are wider and more comfortable (IMHO).

This shot was made on the Belarus-Poland border. It is how the wheels are changed to fit the another country standart. They lift a coach, take away the old wheels and place a new ones under the coach. Then the coach is lowered and you can continue your travel! The passangers are in their compartments all the time and if you cross the border in night, you will simply don't notice the whole operation.

This shot was made in my Moscow-Prague trip. Hope it will be interesting for you.
