Russia - Iran service commences
Author: NYC4096

In Europe, Russia, and the continent, they "get it"...  Trains are cool and serve a purpose.
Luxury train arrives in Iran on maiden journey from Russia:

With only two trips per year, to call it a regular "service" is a bit of a stretch (which is to say nothing of the prices, which are all in the five-figure category).

Steam powered at least on departure from Moscow(?). This must be an interesting operation to see "...The Trans-Siberian Express had to change the cars and truck wheels, so they fit the Iranian track which has a different gauge of railways than that of Russia..."

20K euros for the cheapest ticket is a bit dear!

Cruise trains are like cruise ships, far removed from providing a transportation 'service' which ordeinary mortals can use to get from A to B.
