Trans-Siberian Railway
Author: Alexmarissa

This may be a question for Asia instead of Europe, but: how many freight trains and passenger trains run on the Trans-Siberian Railway mainline every day? Thanks!

I am not sure of an exact number, but I believe in certain regions that it is substanital. Probably north of 50 a day at least anywhere on the entire line. I would bet many segments though are north of 80-110 trains a day.

An estimate of 60-100 trains a day over most of the Trans-Siberian sound accurate and I wouldn't be surprised if it was higher than that. I've ridden both the Trans-Mongolian and Trans-Manchuria routes, freight traffic on the Manchurian line was much heavier than the Mongolian route.  
Here are my pictures from those trips

Trans-Manchurian: https://flic.kr/s/aHsk3BXW2q 

Right now Russia is a good travel bargin, with the Ruble trading where it is, it makes hotels and hostels more affordable as well as the train fares. I was in Russia back in June and didn't have any problems as an American. Even getting a Russian visa is easy if you pay a little extra to have a an agency do it for you. I use Travel All Russia, https://www.travelallrussia.com, and find the process much easier than doing it yourself, getting a multi-entry passport is the best way to go.
