Abstract: 
This article presents a detailed historical overview of the existence of the largest railway in the world,
which runs for 5,867 miles and connects Far East with Western Europe. Over the years it gained many
names, such as Trans Siberian Land Bridge, Trans Siberian Route, Trans Siberian Line and Trans
Siberian Railway but each one of the names stand for the longest rail route across the continent of
Eurasia. This article provides an opportunity to look at early stages of railway’s construction, its
uniqueness, interesting path of development, survival of two World Wars and finally its establishment as
a vital part of continent’s logistics chain. Throughout the years, the Trans Siberian Railway (TSR) has
been proven to have the longest history of commercial freight operation between Europe and the Far East.
