Trans Siberian Railway Day 3 on the 070Ч Moscow to Irkutsk train my first “official” day of my Trek in Siberia. The weather was a lot better, blue skies and around 20 C for most of the day
This morning’s sunrise was pretty spectacular, unfortunately my photos do not do it justice.
When I first went exploring it was before the dining car was open, so could not find it… After hearing from a few other passengers that was where they hung out, decided to go and check it out. Get’s full very quickly, they need a second dining car.
Trans Siberian Railway Day 2 on board the 070Ч Moscow to Irkutsk train was from Brantovka to Talitsa about 1433 kms. This was the second day of my Siberian Trek, and my first full day on board the train.
Sleeping was no problem, must have been the rocking and rolling.
we changed locomotives again, guessing now that the changes are crew related.
Each crew must look after their own equipment, so each crew change they swap
out the equipment
The locals at Balenzino were also selling souvenirs and soft toys along with cold drinks, instant noodles. A bit cool this morning, 10 C, and very grey.
Trans Siberian Railway Day 1 on board the 070Ч Moscow to Irkutsk train is the third leg and first of my Trans Siberian Trek on board the Trans Siberian Railway on train 070Ч is from Moskva Yaroslavskaya Station to Irkutsk. A distance of 5186 km that should take 3days, 14 hours and 40 minutes to complete. Today’s travel is only 600 kms from Moskva Yaroslavskaya to Neya.
One of my goals this trip was to dine at the White RabbitChef’s Table in Moscow. It was a experience more than a meal and exceeded my expectations. Looking forward to my next visit!

The Chef on the night I was there was Alexey Kogay who is the Chef of Chicha Bar a Japanese and Peruvian restaurant. A place I will have to visit next time I am in Moscow.
The Menu was all about Seafood, and was definitely an interesting night.
Everything was in Russian, so I was lucky to be sitting next to a Russian Teenager, Daria, who lives in SINGAPORE, and spoke perfect English (better than mine). Thankfully Daria translated all the important stuff.
Don’t let the lack of English prevent you from dining at the White Rabbit Chef’s Table, it really was not an issue.
